On July 6th, SFT staff, students and members will join people around the world in celebrating the 80th birthday of one of the most recognizable icons of peace, hope and compassion in our world: His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. 

When His Holiness escaped from Tibet in 1959 at age 25, he embarked on a tireless journey to lead his people in their freedom struggle. Over the past fifty years he has created a thriving exile community, built international support for Tibet, and inspired countless people to believe a better world is possible. 

His Holiness has committed his life to transforming our world through compassion and nonviolent action. 

Through our innovative youth leadership training programs, hard-hitting campaigns and strategic nonviolent direct actions, SFT is working to help end the Chinese government’s occupation of Tibet and secure a future where His Holiness the Dalai Lama and all Tibetans are reunited in a free Tibet. 

Join us as we celebrate His Holiness' 80th birthday and recommit to working for peace and justice in Tibet and around the world.
