Since 2009, ICT has organized a Lobby Day and training for Tibetan-Americans and their American supporters in Washington, DC. This annual event has subsequently spread to other national capitals. In this photo, Lobby Day participants in Washington send a message to those who lobbied their Members of Congress by phone, email and in their local districts. In 2012, all 435 Congressional offices received a personal visit or message from a constituent. In 2013, Lobby Day is March 18 and 19.
