Like his predecessor, President Bush, President Obama has met the Dalai Lama on a number of occasions. However, the Dalai Lama's visit to a number of US states and cities this year provides an opportunity for other leading political figures to extend an official welcome to him and seek a meeting with him.

See the list below for names and contact details for key political figures in each area. You can use this template letter to contact them if useful. We also have a template letter for publication in the press that you could adapt and send to generate publicity.
