Annual Awards Dinner
Commemoration of the 26th anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre

Saturday, May 30 2015 /5 P.M.

In the spring of 1989, Beijing erupted with the largest spontaneous demonstrations the Peoples’ Republic of China had witnessed in its 40-year history.  The pro-democracy movement quickly spread to over 30 cities around China before the world witnessed the horrors of the government’s brutal crackdown.  As the Chinese people fled from the tanks and guns, they asked the international press to let the world know the truth.

They asked the world not to forget.
