Mission Statement

Tibetans, with their distinct culture, religion, ethic origin, language and national identity, are an oppressed people in China-occupied Tibet and face the real threat of total assimilation.

The C100 is dedicated to educating people throughout the world on the tragic situation in Tibet today. Tibetans continue to be deprived of their basic human rights and freedoms, are marginalized and impoverished by unjust and discriminatory policies, and their unique culture and Buddhist religion - an ancient heritage of inestimable value to all humanity - is in peril.

We defend the right of Tibetans to their own national identity and chosen way of life and are committed to advancing the Tibetan people's legitimate right to decide their own future consistent with their United Nations-recognized right to self-determination.

Description

Soon after the founding of the organization, a sizable group formed of internationally-known Nobel laureates, thinkers, actors, performers, creative artists, politicians, statesmen, and business and religious leaders, who wholeheartedly supported the Tibetan cause. This group of individuals quickly grew and became the Committee of 100.

Today, through the activities lead by our Board of Directors and Advisory Board, the C100 leverages the collective prestige and moral stature of the Committee to help raise world awareness of the Tibet issue and advance the Tibetan people's right to decide their own future.
