“Local Falun Dafa practitioners have touched the lives of many residents through workshops, classes, and cultural programs, enriching the lives of residents in the greater Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area.”
“World Falun Dafa Day honors Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of the practice, and recognizes the Falun Dafa practitioners’ peaceful, yet courageous and resilient protest against the Chinese communist regime's persecution.
“Now, Therefore, I, Steuart L. Pittman, County Executive, do hereby proclaim May 13, 2020 as World Falun Dafa Day in Anne Arundel County and call upon all of our citizens to practice Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance in their daily lives.”
