GOVERNMENT ADVOCACY

Since 1988, ICT has been at the heart of one of the world’s most successful advocacy movements.

Through our work with elected leaders, testimony at government hearings and advocacy for important legislation, we’ve helped get the international community to take action on Tibet.

One of our biggest successes was the Tibetan Policy Act. It makes support for Tibet part of US law, requires the president and secretary of state to encourage China to take part in direct negotiations with the Dalai Lama and created the position of special coordinator for Tibetan issues in the State Department.

Another success was the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act, which was signed into law in December 2018. It pressures China to let US human rights monitors, journalists and citizens into Tibet. Under the legislation, the Chinese officials responsible for keeping Americans out of Tibet will be denied entry to the US—until China changes its policies.

We’ve helped the Dalai Lama meet with four sitting US presidents, and we take US delegations to visit the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration in India. Thanks to our efforts since 1988 and those of the Tibetan American community, the US has provided thousands of visas and hundreds of millions of dollars in aid for the Tibetan people.

Outside the US, ICT makes sure the voices of Tibetans are heard in the United Nations, Australia and Europe, too.

The support of the international community is crucial to the Tibetan cause. But with China ramping up pressure on foreign governments, we need your support now more than ever. Help us advocate for Tibet.
