07/27/20 - Rep. Lofgren tweeted "It's upsetting to see the defacing of the KZV School & Armenian Community Center in the Bay Area. I strongly denounce this hate-fueled vandalism. Bigotry & hate threaten to undo the promises of equality, inclusion, & opportunity that are core American values." View the tweet here.

12/12/19 - Rep. Lofgren posted the following to Facebook: "I applaud my colleagues in the Senate for following the House’s lead & officially recognizing the Armenian genocide. The persecution & murder of Armenians at the hands of the Turkish government was a crime against humanity. Proud that we are finally on the right side of history." View the Facebook post here.

11/13/19 - Rep. Lofgren posted the following to Facebook: "Last time Erdogan visited DC, his bodyguards assaulted Americans exercising their constitutional right to peacefully protest. I immediately called for the arrest of these thugs and the revocation of their visas at the time, and I’m appalled that Trump has welcomed this oppressor back without any repercussions."

10/29/19 - Rep. Lofgren posted the following to Facebook: "The genocide that was committed against Armenians is indisputable & its denial has been used to justify subsequent atrocities. I have supported efforts like H.Res. 296 to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide since I was first elected to Congress in 1994. I am proud to finally vote in favor of this long overdue legislation on the House floor today." View the Facebook post here.

10/24/19 - Rep. Lofgren posted the following to Facebook: "Trump’s cowardly appeasement of authoritarian strongmen is emboldening Erdogan to act with impunity. The US is supposed to condemn bad actors when they violate human rights & kill our allies, not aid & abet them. Instead of capitulating to Erdogan’s demands, Trump should: 1. Sanction Turkish officials responsible for these atrocities. 2. Stop selling arms to Turkey for use in Syria. 3. Revoke visas of Erdogan’s bodyguards who assaulted protestors on US soil. 4. Recognize the Armenian genocide." View the Facebook post here.

10/16/19 - Rep. Lofgren posted the following to Facebook: "The Russian military is now in Northern Syria - while our U.S. tactical nukes (at a base in Turkey) are unsecured & our troops are isolated & in danger. All because of the pullout ordered by the President. It makes me wonder: whose team is Trump on?" View the Facebook post here.
