Alice Hu said, “I was deceived by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) when I was in China. After I came to the States, I saw that Falun Dafa was completely different from what the propaganda in China told us.”

She had multiple diseases. After having her first baby, her doctor told her that she wouldn’t be able to have another one. However, all her health problems were gone after she began practicing Falun Dafa, and she had another healthy baby. “Falun Dafa has helped me find my true self and happiness. I’m grateful to Master Li!”

Helen Li, who coordinates the Los Angeles Service Center for Quitting the CCP, said that Falun Dafa had brought improved health and harmonious relationships to many people and that Master told practitioners to clarify the truth to people, which could turn things into a positive direction for them. She encouraged Chinese people to quit the Communist organizations and keep in their mind a positive message: “Falun Dafa is great, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!”

Helen Li calls for Chinese people to quit the Communist organizations they joined to take a stance against the Party’s vicious crimes.
