MAYDAY! Conference

Finding Hope in Exile on Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Since the Dalai Lama went into exile in 1959 following the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the Tibetan people have sought refuge in India and throughout the world, including Minnesota. They have since struggled to maintain their identity and build a global democratic culture.

This conference will present the story of that exile experience and Tibetan efforts to maintain and build their culture under difficult circumstances.

Free will donations will be accepted to support the operations of the recently established Dalai Lama Institute for Higher Education in Bangalore, India.
