Campus Center 904, UMass Amherst, MA, USA

Nyima Lhamo, a human rights defender from Tibet. will be sharing her story. From as early as the age of 12, Nyima Lhamo has been a courageous advocate for Tibetans inside Tibet. After the passing of her late uncle, Tibetan religious leader Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, she played a key role as a leader in the fight for justice. Her work as a community leader inside Tibet has resulted in her harassment and even unlawful detention by the Chinese authorities. Eventually, she had to seek refuge in exile and has been separated from her mother and daughter. Despite the difficulties in her own life, Nyima Lhamo has been a brave and vocal advocate for human rights and justice inside Tibet. She continues to advocate and share the stories of her own experiences and the experiences of others inside Tibet.

The event will be translated by Tenzin Dhardon Sharling la, former member of Tibetan parliament and current PhD candidate at UMass Amherst.
