Message to CA Assembly Members,

Subject: Support AB 1019


Dear Senator,

As a constituent, I urge you to coauthor AB 1019, the Stop Investment in Turkey Act that will mandate the state to stop all new investments or renew existing investments issued or owned by Turkey using the full force of the California government to pressure Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide and takes steps towards justice for its victims.

Last year, we witnessed Turkey’s continued genocidal policies as they backed Azerbaijan’s aggression against Armenia and Artsakh that included sending foreign mercenaries to attack innocent Armenian civilians and ethnically cleanse the Armenian presence from their ancestral homeland.

Continued investment in the Government of Turkey signals implicit support for their actions, and it needs to stop immediately.

I strongly urge you to vote YES on AB 1019 when it is brought up for a vote.

Thank you!


Your generosity empowers our advocacy, inspires our work, and sustains our momentum.
