(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners and supporters from all over the United States held a rally, march, and candlelight vigil on the National Mall near Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on July 20, 2023, calling for an end to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution.

On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin, former head of the CCP, launched the persecution of Falun Gong. This persecution has continued to this day, and for 24 years practitioners have peacefully exposed it.

Members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives recorded videos or sent letters of support to Falun Gong practitioners, condemning the CCP’s persecution and calling for it to end.
