Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Sam Brownback (R-KS) and Joseph Biden (D-DE) have introduced a resolution welcoming His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Washington, D.C., in September and recognizing him for his lifelong commitment to non-violence and human rights.

The Dalai Lama is visiting Washington, D.C., from September 9 to 11 to meet with key U.S. government leaders, including President Bush.

This visit is an important opportunity for Tibet supporters to let the U.S. government know that they need to actively encourage substantive dialogue between the Dalai Lama and the Chinese leadership.
