(Minghui.org) May 13 is World Falun Dafa Day, and this year is the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction. The New Jersey Senate and General Assembly issued a joint legislative resolution to honor Falun Dafa Day. The resolution commends the contribution of Falun Dafa practitioners to the local community. The joint resolution was unanimously passed in both the Senate and the General Assembly, and then signed by Senate President Nicholas P. Scutari and Speaker Craig J. Coughlin of the General Assembly.
The resolution reads, “The Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey are pleased to acknowledge that the Twenty-Third Annual World Falun Dafa Day will take place in the Garden State and the global community on May 13, 2022.
“This auspicious date also marks the Thirtieth Anniversary of the introduction of Falun Dafa, which was first taught publicly in China in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi.
“The practice of Falun Dafa has helped to improve the health, purify the mind, uplift the spirit, and deepen the understanding of those who engage in this popular meditative endeavor.
“New Jersey’s Falun Dafa practitioners have presented numerous exercise instruction classes in senior centers, corporate offices, health clubs, parks, libraries, and private residences throughout the Garden State.
“It is both proper and fitting for this Legislature to note the significance of World Falun Dafa Day on May 13, 2022.
“Now, therefore, Be it Resolved by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey: that this Legislature hereby joins in acknowledging World Falun Dafa Day and commends the practitioners in New Jersey for their commitment and dedication to this advanced cultivation and practice system.”
