VOC Awards Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom to Bhuchung K. Tsering

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is proud to present our Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom to Bhuchung K. Tsering, a Tibetan American writer, diplomat, and activist. In 1960, Tsering fled his homeland in the wake of the Chinese Communist invasion and has since become a tireless advocate for the Tibetan people. An ambassador to Tibetan culture and a guiding light to the threat of the CCP’s oppression, he has testified before the US Congress and routinely speaks at think tanks and universities across the United States. Tsering currently leads the Research and Monitoring Unit at the International Campaign for Tibet where he works to spread the truth about China’s ongoing oppression of the Tibetan people, and monitors Beijing’s racial discrimination, environmental destruction, and nuclear activities on the Tibetan plateau.

Bhuchung K. Tsering will be awarded the Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom, VOC’s commemoration of those who have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to freedom and democracy as well as an opposition to communism and all other forms of tyranny, on June 9 at the 16th Annual Roll Call of Nations Wreath Laying Ceremony. VOC holds the Roll Call of Nations every year to honor the memory of the more than 100 million victims killed by communism, and boldly remind the world that over 1.5 billion people are still oppressed under the yoke of this evil ideology.
