The Office of Tibet, DC informs us that Dr. Pema Yangchen, Sherig Kalon (Education Minister) of Central Tibetan Administration, Dharamsala will be visiting Madison on Wednesday : July 25, 2018. This will be her first official visit to Madison. She will be attending the NATA Tibetan Teachers’ Conference in Minnesota from July 20 – 22, 2018 prior to her visit here. She is also visiting other Tibetan communities in North America including Canada.
She is interested in meeting with the community during her brief visit. Although it will be a weekday evening, we would like as many of the community to join us for a meeting with her at Deer Park on Moday, (7/23/18) at 6.00 pm. High School and college students are especially encouraged to attend this meeting to share their concerns after hearing her speak about the progress made in the field of education and other outlined plans for the future. She could be a source of inspiration for them as she has worked very hard to reach where she is now. As usual, the evening will end with question and answer session.
Please mark the date and time accordingly on your calendars. A strong attendence from our community would reflect that we are very much involved with the happenings in our exiled government and that our concerns matter with future decisions .
