January 30, 2006

WASHINGTON, DC – Members of Congress will join Armenian American community representatives from across the country on Wednesday, April 26th to honor the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide at the 11th ANCA Capitol Hill Observance marking this crime against humanity, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

“We are pleased, once again, to welcome our friends in Congress, all Armenian American groups, our entire community, and our coalition partners from across the country to join with us for the annual Capitol Hill Observance of the Armenian Genocide – now in its eleventh year,” said ANCA Chairman Ken Hachikian. “We look forward to building on the tradition of this yearly program in bringing together Armenian Americans and their elected representatives in support of decisive Congressional action toward a just resolution of the Armenian Genocide.”

As in years past, joining with Armenian Americans and elected officials at the program will be survivors of the Armenian Genocide, members of the diplomatic community, and leaders of civil and human rights organizations. The Armenian National Committee of America Eastern Region, Western Region and Washington headquarters cordially invite community members from across the U.S. to participate in the Capitol Hill Armenian Genocide Observance.
