(Minghui.org) Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, was first made public in Changchun, Jilin Province, China, on May 13, 1992, by its founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi. The practice has since spread to more than 100 countries.

May 13 was declared “World Falun Dafa Day” in 2000. On the occasion of the 2019 World Falun Dafa Day, elected officials in Illinois and Vermont issued proclamations to show their support and commend Falun Dafa.
