GLENDALE, CA – French Senate passage of an anti-genocide denial measure and U.S. House adoption of a resolution urging Turkey to return Christian churches will be the topics discussed at a special Town Hall meeting this Sunday January 29th at 1:00 PM, hosted by the Armenian National Committee of America Western Region (ANCA-WR) at St. Mary’s Church Hall, in Glendale CA.

The event will spotlight two recent victories in the international campaign to secure justice for the Armenian Genocide, including recent Congressional adoption of a measure calling on Turkey to return stolen church properties to their rightful owners, and this week’s French Senate vote to criminalize genocide denial.

Speaking at the event will be Harut Sassounian, publisher of the California Courier newspaper and dedicated advocate of the Armenian Cause. Joining him will be William Bairamian, executive director of the ANCA-WR. Other guest speakers will also address the audience.

Admission is free but because of the limited capacity of the hall, attendees are encouraged to arrive early since entry to the event will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

For questions, the ANCA-WR may be contacted at 818-500-1918.
