I applaud Governor Gavin Newsom for signing into law Assembly Bill 1801 and establishing Genocide Remembrance Day as a state holiday.
Every April 24, Californians will now have the opportunity to reflect on past and present atrocities—including the Armenian Genocide.
Council District 7 and the City of Los Angeles is home to a large Armenian community. I know how much this means to them after fighting for generations to be formally recognized, and I look forward to continuing to stand in solidarity with them every April 24th at the March for Justice.
