August 7 – Memorial Commemoration
Please join us for our Assyrian Memorial Day Commemoration on Monday August 7th at 7pm at the Association.
Assyrian 7th is Assyrian Memorial (Martyrs) Day, in which we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that future generations may live – the Genocide of over 100 years ago, the 1933 massacre in Simeleh which helped inspire Raphael Khan to coin the word “genocide”, the present-day victims in Iraq and Syria, and many others. As we mark this memorial day, we must take a step back to honor the millions lost during these tragedies and look to the future and continue to fight for worldwide recognition.
Guest speakers include Assembly member Adrin Nazarian, LA City Councilman Paul Krekorian, and LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger.
Reception to follow afterward.
