Supervisor Janice Hahn Recognizes “Armenian History Month”

Los Angeles, CA— At the direction of Los Angeles County Supervisors Janice Hahn and Kathryn Barger, the Board of Supervisors has declared the month of April to be “Armenian History Month.”

 

“During Armenian History Month, L.A. County will celebrate the rich culture and heritage of the Armenian people here in our communities and worldwide as well as recognize the dark days of the Armenian Genocide,” said Supervisor Hahn. “Throughout the month of April we will highlight the accomplishments of local Armenian Americans and what an incredible part of the Los Angeles County fabric the Armenian people have become.”

 

This is the second time the County has recognized “Armenian History Month,” after Supervisors Hahn and Barger directed the County to do so in 2017. Previously, the board had only honored Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.

 

Throughout the month Supervisor Hahn is honoring the accomplishments of Armenian American individuals in LA County.  During the first board meeting of the month, Supervisor Hahn honored the Immanuel Armenian Congregational Church in Downey. At the upcoming board meeting on April 10, Hahn will honor racing legends Chris and Cary Agajanian.
