Wyoming recognizes Armenian Genocide


22.04.2017

In a letter dated April 21, 2017 and addressed to the Armenian National Committee of America Western Region (ANCA-WR), Wyoming Governor Matthew H. Mead has recognized the Armenian Genocide and praised the work of Armenian American grassroots, Asbarezreported.

"The atrocities of both the Armenian and Jewish Holocausts were unimaginable," reads Governor Mead’s letter, "but it is important for all to remember – history must not repeat itself." The letter also recalls a meeting with senior ANCA-WR staff earlier this year, when Executive Director Elen Asatryan and Community Development Coordinator Simon Maghakyan visited Cheyenne, adding that "The work of the Armenian National Committee is inspiring." Referencing the upcoming April 23 commemoration in Denver, Governor Mead concludes his letter with, "My thoughts are with you as you gather for the Colorado State Capitol Armenian Genocide Commemoration."

"We thank the Governor of the Great State of Wyoming for standing on the right side of history and adding his voice to the ongoing need to recognize and commemorate the Armenian Genocide," remarked ANCA-WR Chair Nora Hovsepian. "This recognition is a tribute to the memory of our ancestors and a celebration of the brave work of many Wyomingites who supported the national Near East Relief effort of building and operating 400 orphanages for over 132,000 Armenian children who survived the genocide. Last but not least, this recognition is a testament to the tireless work of our grassroots activists and dedicated staff,” continued Hovsepian.

"We extend our deep gratitude to Governor Mead, Senators Bouchard and Peterson, and the elected leaders for their leadership, taking the time to learn about Armenian American issues and supporting the Armenian community of Wyoming and the entire United States, as well as standing by the world’s first Christian nation as it continues to address the ongoing security and economic consequences of the Armenian Genocide," remarked Executive Director Elen Asatryan.
