Join us in taking a stand with Tibet and its people! Through weekly meetings and events we aim to shed light on Tibetan struggles.

Donations enable us to spread the word by hosting events, fundraisers, and more! Your generous gifts will go toward the costs of spreading awareness like hosting documentary screenings, making informational pamphlets and putting on events.

Beginning in 1950, the Chinese government has overtaken Tibet, causing the Dalai Lama to escape and live in exile and causing the people innumerable sufferings. Not only have atrocious human rights violations been occurring for all of these years, but the natural beauty of Tibet is being exploited to an unimaginable degree. A people who have lived for centuries in harmony with the Earth, respecting all life and cycles of existence, are now being persecuted and attacked.

Since last March of 2011, seventeen monks and nuns of self-immolated in a last cry for international attention to their worsening situation.

Tibet on Fire seeks to hear that cry, and spread knowledge of what's really going on, despite the Chinese government's efforts to keep this situation out of the spotlight. The Tibetan culture is one of beauty, compassion, and peace - one that embodies the virtues which can better the world in which we live. So, let's spread the word, allow those who can use their voices to help those whose voices are suppressed.
