Hong Kong Democracy Council (HKDC) is the first and only DC-based, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending Hong Kong’s autonomy and freedoms.

In this darkest moment in Hong Kong’s history with the menacing imposition of the National Security Law, when pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong can no longer travel abroad to raise international support or speak out safely without risking arrest or imprisonment, even extradition, HKDC’s role is more crucial than ever.

We need your help to continue acting as the diplomatic outpost for Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement in the US.

Since our launch just nine months ago (September 2019), HKDC has led the successful efforts to:

  1. Pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and Protect Hong Kong Act
  2. Hold China accountable for eroding “one country, two systems” and violating Hong Kong’s “high degree of autonomy,” leading to the Department of State’s decertification of Hong Kong’s autonomous status
  3. Impose visa bans on Chinese officials undermining Hong Kong’s autonomy and human rights
  4. Introduce 14 Hong Kong legislations in Congress including immigration and refugee protections for Hongkongers
  5. Keep Hong Kong as one of the highest bipartisan priorities on Capitol Hill through hundreds of hearings, briefings, meetings, and media posts
  6. Host the first-ever HKDC US-Hong Kong Policy Conference and Lobby Day in March 2020

100% of your support will go toward
