Dalai Lama Congressional Gold Medal Award Ceremony on West Lawn

The Congressional Gold Medal award is being presented to His Holiness the Dalai Lama “ …in recognition of his enduring and outstanding contribution to peace, non-violence, human rights, and religious understanding.”

Congress has passed a resolution permitting the International Campaign for Tibet to sponsor a public event on the Capitol grounds in connection with the Gold Medal award ceremony.

The Dalai Lama’s speech will follow cultural performances by the Tibetan community in a gathering expected to be attended by thousands. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend the festivities on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Mall.
