04/24/21 - Rep. Spanberger posted the following to Facebook: "Today is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day — a day to honor the more than 1.5 million Armenians who were murdered by the Ottoman Empire. Last Congress, I supported a resolution recognizing these systemic killings as genocide, and earlier this week, I called on President Joe Biden to do the same. Recognizing and remembering atrocities, in all their horror, is essential to ensuring we do not forget the lives lost and we prevent the dark chapters of history from repeating themselves. I commend President Biden for becoming the first U.S. President to formally call this atrocity what it was: genocide." View the Facebook post here.
