SAPAC presents: Women's Empowerment and Social Innovation in Tibet

Born and raised in India, Losang Rabgey never saw her family’s homeland in Tibet until she was 18. Yet through perseverance, sacrifice, and determination, she and her sister, Dr. Tashi Rabgey, have devoted their lives to improving educational, entrepreneurial, and leadership opportunities for Tibetans across the plateau. As exile Tibetans themselves, they also seek to build bridges between Tibetans within and without Tibet and empower this community of under 8 million Tibetans worldwide to advocate for their future on a global scale.

Join South Asian Political Action Committee (SAPAC) for an evening with Dr. Losang Rabgey, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Machik, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC, that incubates social innovation across Tibet. The talk will be followed by a screening of Summer Pasture (same place at 8:30 pm), an award-winning documentary directed by a young Tibetan seeking to document the changes in his nomadic yak-herding community in Kham, southeastern Tibet..

Dinner will be provided before the talk at 7pm, so please join us for a delicious meal catered by House of Tibet Kitchen.
