Friedman, California Legislature Commemorate 102nd Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) joined the rest of the Armenian Caucus for a state capitol news conference to honor the 1.5-million people who were killed 102 years ago in the Armenian Genocide. Assemblymember Friedman represents an area of Los Angeles that is home to the largest contingent of Armenian-Americans in the country. “Glendale is, I hope, soon to become the home of the Armenian-American museum,” said Assemblymember Friedman. “And that’s something that, while the week of remembrance really inspires people in the district every year, that museum is something that will educated and inspire from across the country and from around the world.” The Armenian Caucus also honored USC Institute of Armenian Studies leader Salpi H. Ghazarian for her contributions to addressing and resolving challenges in Armenian communities and announced 3rd Annual Essay & Visual Arts Scholarship winners.
