Elected Officials in the U.S. and Canada Issue Proclamations to Mark World Falun Dafa Day
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, was first taught to the public in Changchun, Jilin Province, China on May 13, 1992 by its founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi. People in over 100 countries have since taken up the spiritual and meditation discipline.
May 13 was declared as “World Falun Dafa Day” in 2000. On the occasion of the 20th Falun Dafa Day and also the 68th birthday of Mr. Li, elected officials in the United States and Canada have issued proclamations to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day and commend Falun Dafa for its contributions to various communities.
