Don't miss this opportunity to be inspired and informed. Chow Hang Tung is a Hong Kong barrister, labour and democratic movement activist, and vice chairperson of the Hong Kong Alliance of Patriotic and Democratic Movement in China ("the Hong Kong Alliance"). Chow Hang Tung was awarded 5 international human rights prizes in 2023 in recognition of her steadfast spirit and sacrifice in safeguarding democracy and human rights of Hong Kong and China. Since 2021, Chow Hang Tung was repeatedly arrested due to her Hong Kong Alliance leadership as well as June 4th commemorative activities.
