Lily Tang Williams

Lily Tang Williams is a Congressional Candidate for the 2024 elections in NH District 2. She is Chair of the NH Asian American Coalition (which she helped to found), a member of the Advisory Board of USPIE, (U.S. Parents involved in Education), and on the Speakers Bureau of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in Washington DC.

Lily Tang Williams is a survivor of Mao’s Communist regime in China. Her parents were from an illiterate working-class family from China’s western Sichuan province. Lily grew up during Mao’s ten-year Cultural Revolution as a child, experiencing extremely poor living conditions, food rationing, social chaos and oppressive Communist restrictions and indoctrination. A few years later while studying in university, she received a copy of the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence from an American student. From these two documents, she first learned about the individual rights and liberty as opposed to collective rights. After Lily became an Assistant Law Professor at Fudan University in Shanghai, she, in good conscience, could no longer support the Chinese Communist Party (CCP.) In 1988, she managed to leave the oppressive regime by seeking, without her university’s support, graduate study in the US.

Soon after arriving in America, Lily met her future husband; they have been happily married for 33 years and have three adult children. While raising her family, Lily became an entrepreneur and began her journey of discovery of Democracy and Liberty. Currently, Lily manages rental properties with her husband while also works part-time as an expert witness on China related cases, traveling the country as a professional speaker, sharing her story about the horrors of Socialism and Communism. Lily warns Americans about the growing parallels between Mao’s Cultural Revolution and American Cultural Marxism today and inspiring people to value their American heritage and their freedoms and opportunities.

Her passionate presentations and interviews have been featured on Fox News, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fox Business, Newsmax, Timcast, Huckabee TV, John Stossel, Joe Pags Show, Gothix TV, Shawn Ryan Show, Epoch Times TV, Glenn Beck Radio, and many other podcasts. Also, she has authored opinion articles for The Epoch Times, Town Hall, National Review, Union Leader, Concord Monitor, 603 Diversity and Granite Grok. Her story was included in the Oral History of Communism Project funded by the State of Florida for K-12 Education. Recently featured in the documentary film, “The Great Awakening,” she has been speaking to students and parents and inspires people to be involved with the Liberty movement.
