United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
July 12, 2012
As you attend this important rally, I commend you for raising awareness about human rights abuse in the People’s Republic of China.
Like you, I am concerned about reports of Falun Gong practitioners in China who have been denied their freedom of belief and expression. As a proud cosponsor of Senate Resolution 232, I continue to strongly believe the United States has an obligation to speak out against human rights abuses by the Chinese government in general and the oppression of Falun Gong practitioners in particular.
I send my warmest wishes for a wonderful rally.
