Support Visas for the Tibetan Womens' Soccer Team

This petition had 518 supporters


Fifteen players of a Tibetan women’s soccer team have been refused US visas to play in a prestigious Texas tournament.  

The team, Tibet Women’s Soccer, had planned to take part in this spring’s Dallas Cup tournament for young players, and was invited by organizers to stay with local players. This is a Dallas Cup tradition enjoyed by international players for many years. 

Unfortunately, the U.S. State Department has determined that these inspiring athletes are not worthy of temporary visas. 

Let's help them get to the U.S. and play the game they love.  Please join us in voicing our support for these young female athletes.  

There's still time to have the State Department approve their visas.
