MONTEBELLO—The United Armenian Council of Los Angeles has brought together an outstanding panel of guests speakers for the 101st commemoration of the Armenian Genocide to be held on Saturday,  April 23rd from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Armenian Genocide Martyrs Monument located at Bicknell Park, Montebello, California.  

Building on the history-making events during last year’s Centennial commemorations,  this year’s solemn event will feature Raffi Hamparian, Chairman of the Armenian National Committee of America, former United States Ambassador to the Republic of Armenia and author John Marshall Evans,  Los Angeles County Supervisor and  former Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Congressman Adam Sciff,  City of Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles City Council member Paul Krekorian, and community leaders,  Vahe Bozoyan and Silva Khachikian on behalf of the UACLA.

We highly encourage all members of the community to attend this year’s Armenian Genocide commemorative events in Montebello. With the recent outbreak of aggression against the people of Artsakh, now more than ever our community must stand united with one voice and continue to assert to the world that We Remember, We Demand.
