Lobby Day logoOn March 19 and 20, 2012, Tibetan-Americans and friends of Tibet are invited to WashingtonDC for the Fourth Annual Tibet Lobby Day.

The success of Tibet Lobby Day depends on the participation and efforts of Tibet supporters like you. It is your opportunity to communicate directly with your elected representatives and let them know that they have constituents who care deeply about Tibet.

The U.S. Congress has long been a bulwark of support for Tibet, from giving His Holiness the Dalai Lama his first parliamentary forum in 1987, to millions of dollars in Tibet support programs every year. But at the same time it is of vital importance that we continue to remind our Members of Congress of their longstanding commitment to Tibet. Faced with the well-funded lobbying might of the Chinese Embassy, it is critical that we speak out to let our elected representatives know of the breadth and depth of support for the cause of Tibet amongst their constituents and ensure that Tibet continues to remain on their legislative agendas.
This event is a collaboration of U.S. based Tibet Support Groups, and Tibetan Associations. International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) will provide lobbying training session, help set up meetings for all participants with their members of Congress, provide lobbying tips and other materials to make your meetings as impactful as possible.

For more information, please contact your local Tibet group or contact ICT advocacy team members leslie.butterfield@savetibet.org or tencho.gyatso@savetibet.org.

More information will be posted on www.savetibet.org in the coming days.
