On Monday, January 28, 2019, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation will award the Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom to Cardinal Joseph Zen.

Joseph Zen is a retired cardinal of the Catholic Church and a vocal proponent of human rights in Hong Kong and China. Called the “New Conscience of Hong Kong,” he has criticized the Communist Party’s crackdown of the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989 and the brutal treatment of the Falun Gong spiritualist movement. Zen remains an influential voice for freedom in China and has led pro-democracy protests and demonstrations in Hong Kong since 2002. He received his licentiate of theology and doctorate of philosophy at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome.
The Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom is awarded to those individuals and institutions who have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to freedom and democracy and opposition to communism and all other forms of tyranny.
