Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressmember Karen Bass (D-CA), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Global Human Rights, issued the following statement marking Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

“Today marks 106 years since the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in the first genocide of the 20th century. That’s what happened. The continued denial of this genocide is an afront to the Armenian community in Los Angeles, throughout this country, and throughout the world. I am proud to again cosponsor the Armenian Genocide resolution, led by my colleague and good friend Congressman Adam Schiff, to affirm the United States record on the Armenian Genocide and am proud to stand with President Biden in finally acknowledging this tragedy. We will not stop fighting for the truth.”
