Lobsang Tenzin

Lobsang Tenzin continually risked his health and safety to advocate for the needs of political prisoners in Tibet and for prison reform. The twist, Lobsang Tenzin is one of Tibet’s longest serving political prisoners and spent time on death row. His story begins as typical college student studying at the Tibet University in Lhasa, Tibet’s capital city and quickly changes to a tale of lifelong torture, endurance and heroic courage.

Giorgio Perlasca

Who would expect an escaped political prisoner would pose as a Spanish diplomat during WWII to save the lives of people in a country not his own? With the option to sneak away and pursue his personal safety, Giorgio Perlasca chose to remain in order to give hope and heroic aid to over five thousand Jews.

Jovito Salonga

Few people highlight the trait of endurance better than Jovito Salonga. During some of the most tumultuous years in Filipino history, Jovito continued to be a voice and force for positive change. His lifetime of dreaming for his country and his determination to reach those goals have helped to shape the Philippines into a more just and democratic society.
