Three North American AYF Regions to Release Joint Publication Commemorating 90th Anniversary of Genocide

WATERTOWN–MA–The Central Executive bodies of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF) Eastern and Western Regions and Canada recently announced plans to release a joint publication chronicling all Armenian genocide commemoration activities held by the three regions in efforts to continue working together towards maintaining strong inter-regional ties.

AYF members from all three regions will contribute text and photos detailing any activities their chapters or region organized to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Genocide. The collection will then be organized and printed by the AYF Eastern Region in July–to be distributed to members in all three regions by their respective Central Executives–as well as to AYF members around the world. The publication will also be available at the Eastern Region’s annual Olympics held in September.

"This endeavor demonstrates each region’s commitment to working together in the context of one of the most important events in diasporan history. Each region has so much to offer and now we will pool our resources into one memorable publication to commemorate the tragedy of the Armenian genocide," said AYF Eastern Region chairman Antranig Kzirian.
