The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in Virginia passed a motion on July 16, 2019, to alert local residents about traveling to China for organ transplant surgeries. Board members put forward the motion because Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience in China have become victims of forced organ harvesting, and the board felt that local Fairfax residents and local medical staff needed to become aware of that.
The motion was initiated by chairwoman Sharon Bulova along with board members John Cook, John Foust, and Pat Herrity. It was then passed unanimously by all members of the board.
