04/23/21 - Rep. Sarbanes posted the following to Facebook: "Tomorrow marks the 106th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide – the systematic annihilation of Armenians at the hand of Ottoman-era Turkish authorities; the massacre and deportation and forced march in the desert of men, women and children. 1.5 million Armenians perished. The United States Congress has formally recognized the Armenian Genocide, by resolutions adopted in both chambers. Now, it is time for that same recognition to come from the President of United States – and we look forward to that this year. In the meantime, and into the future, we will continue to hold close at heart the memory of those who perished in this undeniable tragedy." View the Facebook post here.
