About Lily Tang Williams

Born to illiterate working-class parents in China’s western Sichuan province just before Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Lily Tang Williams grew up experiencing extremely poor living conditions, food rationing, social chaos, and Communist indoctrination.

In spite of these hardships, she learned to work hard, persevere, and was grateful for the opportunities she was given. After universities were re-opened, she graduated from the Fudan University law school in Shanghai, where she was one of the first to be selected to re-populate the law school faculty, as well as being encouraged to practice corporate law in Shanghai to help China begin rebuilding its economy.

In 1988, Lily Tang Williams decided to attend university in the U.S., leaving her faculty position with only $100 in her pocket and $1200 in debt to her American sponsor, a Fulbright professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Although she could not speak English fluently, she was determined to achieve success in this country, earning a Master’s degree in Administration and Planning from the School of Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin.

Subsequently, Lily started work for Wyoming Home Health as a medical social worker, and within a few years she was working as an executive for corporations in both Hong Kong and the U.S. Eventually, she went into business for herself, providing consulting and expert witness services in China-related business and legal cases. She and her husband also manage residential real estate properties they own.

During this time of hard work, and raising her family, Lily began her journey of discovery of liberty and representative democracy. She began traveling the country as a professional speaker sharing her story about the horrors of Socialism and Communism, 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 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 she never fails to inspire people to get involved with the Liberty movement.

Lily Tang Williams is a Congressional Candidate for the 2024 elections in NH District 2 and has numerous endorsements from prominent citizens and organizations. 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.
