Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger introduced two motions at the April 9 Board of Supervisors’ meeting; the first one was to commemorate Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, the Armenian Mirror-Spectator reports.

This motion was co-authored by First District Supervisor Hilda Solis. In addition, Barger proposed the declaration of April as Armenian History Month, highlighting the rich cultural heritage and contributions of the Armenian community.

“Let us recommit ourselves to making certain that we never forget the Armenian Genocide, and that we always speak out against hatred and atrocities anywhere they occur,” said Supervisor Hilda Solis.
