cordially invites you to an

Annual Awards Dinner
Tiananmen Commemoration

In the spring of 1989, Beijing erupted with the largest spontaneous demonstrations the Peoples’ Republic of China had witnessed in its 40-year history since its founding in 1949.  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.

Featured Speaker
Mak Yin Ting
On the 10th anniversary of the hand over of Hong Kong to China, we are pleased
 to invite Ms. Mak Yin Ting to make a special trip from Hong Kong to speak to us. 

Mak Yin Ting has been on the forefront of defending press freedom in Hong Kong.  As the Chair of the Hong Kong Journalists Association from 1996 to 1997, she led the way for the support of journalistic freedom especially during that critical period when Hong Kong was turned over to the Peoples Republic of China.  She was also Chair of HKJA from 1999 to 2003.  She has edited several significant reports for the Journalist Quarterly Perodical for the HKJA as well as for the Hong Kong Human Rights Monitor.
