BURBANK—Prior to the the presidential elections, the ANCA Burbank chapter and the ACF Burbank’s PR committee have jointly organized a Town Hall meeting, on why to vote and how to vote.
The Town Hall meeting will take place on Thursday, November 1, 8 p.m. at the Burbank Armenian Center (75 East Santa Anita, Burbank).
Longtime ANCA activists Mourad Topalian and Zareh J. Sinanyan will explain the importance of voting in a democratic society, especially for the Armenian American community. They will also elaborate on the issues both on national and state levels, which will lead our community during the voting process. The presentation will be both in English and Armenian.
The Armenian American community has spared no efforts towards the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, on developing the US-Armenia relations and to garner more support for the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh by the US authorities. These are the key issues which will lead each and every community member on how to cast his/her vote. It’s clear that President Obama has breached his promise regarding the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Both he and Governor Mitt Romney have declined to meet the representatives of the Armenian American community, in order to hear our concerns.
Therefore at this juncture, each and every Armenian American vote gains more importance.
A Q&A period will follow the panelists’ discussion and the public is encouraged to participate.
The Armenian National Committee of America – Burbank advances 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.
