Welcome Tsultrim Dolma to Amnesty Amherst...!

Tsultrim is a UMASS worker and resident of Amherst for more than a decade... She's originally a refugee from Tibet and active in the human rights movement. Like all refugees, she has a painful story of suffering and struggle in Chinese prisons defending her basic rights a Tibetan. 
She was detained and tortured for 4 months along with 5 of her friends who marched for freedom in Chohko in 1987. "I want to work and help other people and not only Tibetans to gain their freedom" she said with a determined look while she arrived today at the Amnesty information table in downtown Amherst in spite of the rainy day.

Tsultrim is a mother, worker, and soon to be a student. "I can find time to help and work with Amnesty" she said with a glowing smile.
