Press Release

Washington, DC- Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-CA), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, today released the following statement on the 102nd Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide:

“As we come together to commemorate this anniversary, we must also renew our commitment never to allow the world to forget the atrocities of the Armenian Genocide. Over the last 100 years, almost all of the survivors have passed away. But their stories are not lost. Their legacy lives on in all of us – their family and friends. The responsibility to share what happened rests squarely on our shoulders, Armenians and non-Armenians alike.

“I will continue working as long as it takes to get official recognition of the Armenian Genocide. We will get this done. I will keep working to make sure that the United States of America never forgets, and never allows another tragedy like this to happen again.”
