04/24/21 - Rep. Scanlon posted the following to Facebook: "Thank you, President Joe Biden, for recognizing the systematic killing of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians for what it was — genocide. The U.S. remained shamefully silent on the Armenian Genocide for too long. Today, we are finally on the right side of history. To prevent such atrocities from happening again, we must acknowledge the horror of what happened to the Armenian people. Words matter. There is simply no other way to refer to the attempted extermination of an entire population. This was a genocide." View the Facebook post here.
