The Silent Walk will bring Santa Barbara residents and Tibetan friends from the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara to the Faulkner Gallery in order to commemorate nearly 100 young TIbetans who have taken their lives by self-immolation in 2012 alone, as a most desperate form of protest in the face of cultural annihilation.
