To the Assembled Members of the Falun Gong,

I greatly appreciate your invitation to attend today’s rally in Washington DC to raise awareness about the persecution of the Falun Gong in China. It is with the sincerest regret that I must inform you that I am not able to attend.

For thirteen years, the Falun Gong has been denied freedom of expression in China. All people should have the ability to live in a society where religious tolerance, freedom of speech, and democracy are commonplace. We must continue to work to ensure that human freedoms are respected around the world. Please be assured that I will continue to fight for basic human rights. I thank you for raising awareness about the situation in China, and I offer my best wishes for a successful rally.


Zoe Lofgren

Member of Congress
