The legislation also strengthens the landmark Tibetan Policy Act of 2002, addresses the issue of water security and climate change in Tibet, provides humanitarian assistance for Tibetans in Tibet and in exile and pushes China to negotiate with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan leaders without preconditions.
The bill was unanimously approved by the House Foreign Affairs Committee in December 2019. Now it needs to be approved by the entire House, passed by the Senate and signed into law by the president.
Getting this bill passed is one of the most important things Tibet supporters can do to protect Tibet’s future. Help us make the Tibetan Policy and Support Act law.
