CFCC’s Students for a Free Tibet travels to DC

Marah Litchford, a CFCC Religion Instructor, recently traveled in March 2016 with a CFCC student group, Students for a Free Tibet, to Washington DC to meet with congressional representatives on behalf of The International Campaign for Tibet.

The students also contacted local government and successfully convinced local Representative Mark Rouzer to sign on to a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry calling for accountability for human rights violations in China.

This student group was featured in an international human rights publication, Tibet Press Watch. Student group president Isidro Moreno-Vega and student Allisha LaGrange are in one of the photos below.
