(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) and the State Assembly held a special commemoration of the Armenian Genocide during the April 17th floor session to remember the 1.5-million people who lost their lives in that often forgotten tragedy. “The entire wealth, culture, history and lives of the Armenian people were destroyed and this resolution (AJR 3) before us is more than just a resolution, it’s a statement of values,” Assemblymember Bocanegra said to his fellow Assemblymembers. “It’s a statement of values of this state and of this Legislature that we will forever honor the memories lost of all those people.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
