SFT is built on grassroots, community organizing. We encourage everyone to start a chapter in their community to pave a road to a free and independent Tibet. Only with the involvement of diverse, local groups is our mission possible.
YOU can make a difference in the Tibetan Freedom Movement. By building an active community around you, you give Tibetans inside Tibet hope for freedom and independence. It’s simple – start your own chapter.
The process for starting your journey as a leader within the Tibetan Freedom Movement varies from school to school, and community to community. On our end, though, the process is simple.
Register with us here. Once you and a couple of friends decide to take on the challenge to defend human rights and freedom in Tibet, register with us as a chapter. That puts us in contact with you and we are always ready to help.
Pay your yearly chapter dues. If you cannot afford the $100 registration, apply for a waiver from the fee. As SFT is a grassroots organization, we are heavily dependent on financial support from individual members and chapters. Once your fees are paid or waived, we will send you a chapter starter kit with all kinds of fun goodies – including stickers, buttons, brochures, and access to a chapter manual.
Gain official recognition at your school. The process and deadlines are different for each school, so make sure you research it!
Table at your school and around your community. Tabling is a really easy way to get more members and word of mouth going about the Tibetan cause.
Organize your first event! Try a simple interest meeting or something fun like Tibetan dinner or a movie screening. These social events will get the momentum going on your new SFT chapter.
