LOS ANGELES. – The Armenian Genocide 100th Anniversary Committee is established in Los Angeles. Its objective is to coordinate and head the Genocide commemoration events to be held in the US West Coast, and in the lead-up to April 24, 2015, the Committee informs.
The Committee’s formation was preceded by community discussions with the largest Armenian organizations of the US West Coast.
“The creation of the Committee reflects these organizations’ decision to centralize under a united strategic plan the efforts toward organizing Armenian Genocide’s 100th anniversary events.
The Committee of the US West Coast will coordinate the activities of the regional chapters and support their initiatives. Also, the Committee will closely cooperate with the state body that coordinates the Armenian Genocide’s 100th anniversary events and with the similar organizations of the [Armenian] Diaspora,” the Armenian Genocide 100th Anniversary Committee’s statement reads in particular.
