Hi dolls! I wanted to bring something to your attention that I think is a really important issue.
As some of you may be aware, although many of you may not be, Turkey still denies that the Armenian Genocide took place, and the U.S. government has remained silent about it due to pressure from the Turkish government.
The Armenian Genocide was a series of terrible massacres committed by Turkey between 1915 and 1923 that killed members of my extended family and over two million other Armenians and Christians in the Ottoman Empire.
It’s time for America to speak openly and honestly about this horrible crime against humanity, and the only way this will happen is if WE speak up first.
To get your voice heard, call Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, at (202) 225-0100 and ask her to pass the Armenian Genocide Resolution, H.Res.252. This human rights legislation will help make sure that the lessons of this genocide are used to help prevent future crimes against humanity.
