Ohio: Cincinnati Proclaims Falun Dafa Day


(Minghui.org) May 13, 2022 is World Falun Dafa Day and the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public. Mayor Aftab Pureval of Cincinnati proclaimed May 13, 2022 as Falun Dafa Day in the city.

The proclamation reads, “Falun Dafa practitioners have touched the lives of Cincinnati residents and the world, during these difficult times. We offer exercise instruction, health information through free on-line workshops, cultural programs, outdoor exercise sites and various personal accounts. Many have found it to be life-changing for the better.

“As we seek to honor Falun Dafa on the 30th anniversary of its founding, we in particular want to recognise the ongoing legacy of commitment to truth and compassion that had been brought into the world by those practitioners who persevered in the face of the brutal crackdown in China. We feel that those of us who live in freedom owe a debt their sacrifice, and that will be remembered by all of us who celebrate Falun Dafa Day on May 13th.”

Proclamation from Mayor Aftab Pureval of Cincinnati.
