About me

I am Fung Chi Wood, a pastor, activist and politician dedicated to advocating for social justice and democratic principles in Hong Kong. My journey in activism began in my youth, fueled by the challenges and inequalities I witnessed in my community. This early exposure ignited my passion for making a difference, leading me to pursue higher education in political science and public administration.

Throughout my career, I have served as a legislative council member, where I championed causes close to my heart, including labor rights, education reform, and environmental protection. My work in the legislature has always been guided by a deep commitment to improving the lives of my constituents and fostering a more just and equitable society.

In addition to my legislative efforts, I am actively involved in grassroots movements and civil society organizations. I firmly believe in the power of community engagement and the importance of building a participatory democracy where every voice is heard and respected. My involvement in these movements has brought critical issues to the forefront and inspired many to join the cause for justice and equality.

My philosophy is grounded in the belief that true progress comes from dialogue, persistence, and unwavering ethical standards. I am proud of the work I have done and the impact it has had, but I am equally inspired by the new generation of activists who continue to push for change.

As I look to the future, my commitment to advocacy remains as strong as ever. I am dedicated to continuing the fight for human rights, political freedom, and the rule of law in Hong Kong, and I remain hopeful that together, we can create a better, more equitable world for all.
