His Holiness the Dalai Lama at ICT’s Gold Medal Gala [Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, Washington, DC, October 18, 2007]

ICT and its supporters celebrate the bestowing of the Congressional Gold Medal, the US Congress’ highest civilian commendation, on His Holiness the Dalai Lama. ICT and its American supporters reached out to their Members of Congress in support of the initiative, which by law requires two-thirds sponsorship of both the House and Senate before consideration. In this photo, the Dalai Lama thanks those gathered for their efforts on behalf of the Tibetan people.
