US GOVERNMENT

The United States has a long history of policies and programs that protect Tibetan culture and promote political dialogue between China and the Dalai Lama.

Through our advocacy team, ICT works closely with the US Congress and the presidential administration.

Thanks to strong bipartisan support from Congress and persistent advocacy from ICT members, the US has passed several laws that empower the Tibetan people. Most notable are the Tibetan Policy Act of 2002, which codifies support for Tibet in US law; the Congressional Gold Medal given to the Dalai Lama in 2007 that recognizes the universal value of his nonviolent struggle to regain Tibetan rights; and the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act of 2018, which bans access to the US for the Chinese officials responsible for keeping Americans out of Tibet.

Congress also regularly provides programmatic support for the Tibetan people, including humanitarian aid, economic development assistance and the funding of Tibetan-language news services.

ICT strives to make sure Tibet remains a priority in US foreign policy and relations with China. We support the State Department’s special coordinator for Tibetan issues and encourage discussion about Tibet in talks between American and Chinese leaders. We have also helped facilitate past meetings between American officials and the Dalai Lama.

From our headquarters in Washington, DC, and thanks to the American people’s overwhelming support for the Tibetan cause and the Dalai Lama, ICT has built enduring support for Tibet among US lawmakers for more than 30 years.
