Backed by readers, run by journalists and immune to political and commercial pressure, Hong Kong Free Press was set up in 2015 to weather any storm. Four years on, HKFP has proven that it is possible to sustain a truly independent news outlet with grassroots support. But this support does not just come in the form of money. At last year’s TEDx Wanchai, co-founder Tom Grundy explained how HKFP is a news outlet powered by the kindness of Hongkongers. 

Many thanks for supporting the HKFP #PressForFreedom 2019 Funding Drive, which ended on July 2, 2019.
