The June 4 Memorial Fund was initiated in response to the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre in Beijing, China. As an independent, non-profit student/faculty organization, its purpose was to promote human rights for Chinese people living inside and outside of China. During the group's existence, they brought speakers to the University at Buffalo, held an annual commemorative event, and worked to advance public awareness of civil rights issues.
