March For Tibet. Together, we will Free Tibet.
Joining the Regional Tibetan Youth Congress of MN is essentially an act of one's endorsement that the Tibetan people have the right to be free. Membership in RTYC is open to any Tibetan who subscribes to the Aims and Objectives of the Organization. Since TYC is primarily a freedom movement, there is no age limit and no distinction between men and women. However, the vast majority of members and the leadership continue to be youth. Join RTYC now!
TYC was founded on Oct 7, 1970 in Dharamsala with His Holiness the Dalai Lama delivering the inaugural address.
This strengthened the Tibetan people's struggle for independence and ensured its continuity.
