PASADENA, CA–ANC activists Gegham Manukyan, Robert Khachikyan, Armen Donigian and Razmik Khachikyan recently met with Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) in Pasadena to thank him for his continuous support of the Armenian American Community, specifically regarding House Resolution 106, the Armenian Genocide resolution introduced to Congress in 2007.
"We realize the importance of communicating our concerns on behalf of our community to our Congressional leadership, and we are appreciative of the response," stated Khachikyan.
"The efforts for recognition of the Armenian Genocide continue in order to preserve historical integrity and protect human rights issues worldwide," added Manukyan.
Khachikyan spoke with the Congressman regarding the status of H. Res. 106. Congressman Schiff reiterated his support of the Armenian American community and reassured that he will once again support the Armenian Genocide Resolution when it is introduced in Congress.
Donigian thanked the Congressman for his support and participation during the Days of Advocacy earlier this year when hundreds of members from the Genocide Intervention Network and ANC chapters across the nation met in Washington, DC to advocate human rights issues pertaining to Darfur and the Armenian Genocide.
The ANC of Pasadena advocates for the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s Armenian American community and promotes increased Armenian American civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
