Social Media Campaign on ICCPR
 
The LegCo public hearing on the government’s report on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) was cancelled in November at the last minute. Unable to express the views directly to the government, Hong Kong Unison organized our youth to give their 3-minute speeches online to let the public hear their voices concerning the civil rights of local ethnic minorities. To view the series of videos, please follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HongKongUnison) and Instagram.
 
上月由於立法會取消聯合國《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》的公聽會,我們無法出席向政府直接表達意見。因此,香港融樂會組織了幾位少數族裔青年,在網上發表三分鐘演講,讓公眾聽到本地少數族裔對公民權利議題的聲音。我們已在社交媒體上載一系列短片,請關注我們的面書 (https://www.facebook.com/HongKongUnison) 及Instagram.

Submission to LegCo Panel on Education
向教育事務委員會提交意見書

 
Hong Kong Unison made a submission to the Legislative Council Panel on Education (Policy Briefing) on 4 December 2020. We are particularly concerned about the lack of Chinese learning support for ethnic minority students during COVID school suspension. We urged the government to reallocate the additional funding for NCS after-school support to home-learning support so that NCS students can maintain their learning progress.  We also recommended the government to regularly publish the data on the "Chinese Language Curriculum Second Language Learning Framework" so that stakeholders can refer to and understand its effectiveness.

香港融樂會於十二月四日向立法會教育事務委員會提交了一份
意見書,就政府2020年施政簡報提交建議。我們特別關注少數族裔學童在疫情停課下缺乏中文學習支援,及非華語學生的生涯規劃及中國語文學習支援。我們要求政府將原先用以支援課後學習的資源轉放到在家中文學習支援處,以便非華語學生能維持一定學習進度;我們亦促請政府定期公開「中國語文課程第二語言學習架構」所收集的數據,以便持份者參考了解成效。
 
Submission to LegCo Panel on Welfare Services
向福利事務委員會提交意見書

On 30 December, Hong Kong Unison made a submission to the Legislative Council Panel on Welfare Services regarding the policy initiatives briefing. We expressed our concerns on the cultural sensitivity training for frontline civil servants and related issues on domestic violence of ethnic minorities. We urged the government to make mainstream social services accessible to ethnic minorities as soon as possible.

Cultural sensitivity trainings to teachers
文化敏感度教師講座
 
Hong Kong Unison conducted two talks to teachers in December. One talk was conducted for 70 teachers of VTC on Promoting Racial Integration in schools and the other talk was for about 30 kindergarten teachers on supporting ethnic minority children and their families to integrate into the mainstream learning community.

The teachers became more aware of the difficulties ethnic minority students face and learned ways to help them integrate in mainstream schools. Unison awardees were guest speakers who shared their stories of trying to integrate. The teachers appreciated the honest dialogues.
