Washington legislators have recognized the Armenian Genocide on the state and local level. Gubernatorial proclamations as well as state and local legislation are provided below since 1990. If you know of other documents to be added to this list – old or new – please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to showcasing them.
Washington citizens also played an active role in assisting Armenian Genocide survivors through the Congressionally mandated Near East Foundation, during the years 1915 – 1930. Learn more about their efforts below, through research prepared by the ANCA Western Region’s “America We Thank You” program.
And finally, review our snapshot of news coverage of the Armenian Genocide in Washington press, as we spotlight three articles, prepared as part of the ANCA’s “Genocide Diary” project. Check back to the Genocide Diary’s Washington page for new articles added on a monthly basis.
