ANCA-WR leaders meet California Assembly Speaker

PanARMENIAN.Net - Following the unanimous passage of the Armenian Genocide resolution authored and introduced by California Assembly Speaker John Perez, leaders of the Armenian National Committee of America - Western Region (ANCA-WR) held a private meeting with the Speaker to thank him for his leadership and support and to discuss issues of importance to the Armenian-American community.

At the front seat of topics discussed were ongoing effort to secure recognition of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh Republic) by the California legislature, the recent attacks facilitated by Turkey resulting in displacement of Armenians in Kessab, Syria, as well as the organization's centennial project "America, We Thank You" highlighting the massive relief efforts made by the United States during the Armenian Genocide through the Near East Relief.

"We are extremely grateful to Speaker Perez who was so moved by the experience of his legislative trip to Armenia with the ANCA-WR last fall, that he highlighted the authority of his office by personally introducing the Armenian Genocide resolution this year. We were also gratified to be able to meet privately with the Speaker once again for our ongoing discussions about the current situations our brethren face in Artsakh and in Kessab, and we look forward to his continued leadership on issues of concern to California's large Armenian-American constituency," stated ANCA WR Chair Nora Hovsepian.
