Support TPSA

The Tibetan Policy and Support Act (TPSA) is a bipartisan American bill which strengthens support for Tibetans, especially on the crucial issues of establishing an American diplomatic presence in Lhasa and preventing Chinese interference in Tibetan religious freedom, particularly in the selection of the next Dalai Lama. It also stands up against Beijing’s hostility and rightly affirms Tibetan Buddhists’ universal right to practice their faith without Chinese government interference.

TPSA includes language to protect the future of the institution of His Holiness the Dalai Lama;  reaffirm Tibet’s role in the climate conversation; and holds Chinese CCP leaders accountable for their actions in Tibet.

There is no better time than now to stand up to the Chinese government and support Tibetans. The coronavirus pandemic—caused by the Chinese government’s lack of transparency and respect for freedom—has wreaked havoc on the American economy and has given the CCP a pretext to heighten repression of Tibetans. If the coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it is that the Chinese government’s authoritarian practices are a danger to us all. This is why it is so imperative to support those who are struggling against the Chinese Communist Party and their oppression and censorship during this difficult time.  

In the fight for human rights and freedom in Tibet, TPSA is an important step towards justice!
