|Civil Human Rights Front|
Civil Human Rights Front or CHRF (Chinese: 民間人權陣線) is an organisation that focuses on the issues of Hong Kong politics and livelihood, affiliated with almost all pan-democratic camps in Hong Kong. Forty-eight NGOs and political groups have been involved in the organisation as of January 2006. The most well-known event held by the CHRF is the Hong Kong 1 July marches.
Civil Human Rights Front was founded on 13 September 2002, with the aim to provide a platform consolidating voices and powers from various groups and spectrum of the societies in order to advance the development in the human and civil rights movements.
The initial aim was to focus on the enactment of the legislation of Article 23 of the Basic Law. After the protest in 2003, the organisation started to diversify its mandate, to include issues such as equal opportunities and authorities given to the police.
Since 2017 they have been lobbying the Hong Kong government through the United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process as one of the main Hong Kong UPR Coalition Steering Committee members alongside Justice Centre Hong Kong, PEN Hong Kong, and Hong Kong Watch.
The following civic organisations and political parties are members of CHRF.
