The International Campaign for Tibet presents the Light of Truth Awards annually to individuals and institutions that have made significant contributions to the public understanding of Tibet and the Tibetan struggle for human rights and democratic freedoms.
It is the most prestigious award in the Tibet movement and is presented by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on behalf of ICT.
This year, ICT will honor the late Julia Taft, a great humanitarian and true friend of Tibet.
ICT will also honor a remarkable group of Chinese who, at great personal risk, have taken a daring step to advance the truth about the situation in Tibet.
