Professor Lavee, who is a member of the board of directors of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), started by explaining Falun Gong and its principles.

He then explained how he became aware of the organ harvesting crimes in China. A patient of his needed a heart transplant and went to China to get it. Lavee was puzzled by the possibility of getting a heart on a fixed day, two weeks ahead. He began investigating, which led to his learning about organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, the largest group of prisoners of conscience in China. He subsequently joined efforts to raise awareness and help end this atrocity.

Attendees after the event remarked that the speech about organ harvesting in China was eye-opening and very moving.
