Sixty-two New York State Assembly Members Extend Congratulations in Honor of World Falun Dafa Day
(Minghui.org) This May marks the 17 th annual celebration of World Falun Dafa Day – a joyous occasion to reflect on the many benefits that Falun Dafa has brought to the world. While the holiday is especially important to Dafa practitioners, friends and supporters around the world have also taken note of the importance of this celebration. Sixty-two State Assembly Members from New York have recently sent letters of congratulation and issued proclamations in honor of Falun Dafa, praising the universal values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and Falun Dafa's positive impact on society.
Among the New York State elected officials who showed their support for Falun Dafa, forty-eight Assembly Members co-signed a citation proposed by Assembly Member Steven Englebright.
At the end of the citation, the lawmakers acknowledged, “New York State is a better place because of practitioners of Falun Dafa who are committed to enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment,” and officially recognized May 13 as “World Falun Dafa Day.”
Seventeen New York State Assembly Members also issued proclamations, citations, or letters of congratulation individually. Four of them are part of those who co-signed the group citation.
