ICT founders and friends [International Campaign for Tibet, Washington, DC, 1988]

On March 15, 1988, the International Campaign for Tibet was established to support the Tibetan people’s struggle for human rights and democratic freedoms. From a handful of dedicated individuals ICT has grown into an international organization empowered by the vision of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This photo was taken at ICT’s first office and shows, from left to right, John Ackerly (ICT staff from 1988 and President, 1999-2009), Tenzin Chhodak, Tenzin N.
