Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) works in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence. We are a chapter-based network of young people and activists from around the world. Through education, grassroots organizing, and non-violent direct action, we campaign for Tibetans’ fundamental right to political freedom. Our role is to empower and train youth as leaders in the worldwide movement for social justice.
Our chapter at the University of Vermont strives to educate students and affiliates of the University about the nature of the injustices against the Tibetan people, to celebrate the beauty of Tibetan culture, and work with and support the Tibetan community of Burlington, VT.
