(Minghui.org) On May 24, Chicago’s mayor and city council members issued a resolution to honor the Mid-USA Falun Dafa Association and its practitioners and supporters on their 25-year commitment to this practice.

The resolution was initiated by Brendan Reilly, the Alderman of the 42nd Ward, which covers several business districts and tourist spots.

The resolution recognizes Falun Gong's moral philosophy and positive impact on practitioners' health and spiritual wellbeing as well as its contribution to the community.
