Prelate Presented with City of Inglewood Proclamation Recognizing the Armenian Genocide


On Wednesday, April 22, 2015 H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, welcomed Inglewood City Council member Ralph Franklin, who had come to the Prelacy to present His Eminence with a proclamation by the City of Inglewood declaring April 24, 2015 as a day of remembrance of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923. The Councilmember was accompanied by friend of the Prelacy Mr. Kevork Karajerjian and his sons Ara and Apo, who work closely with the Inglewood City Council.

The Prelate welcomed Councilmember Franklin and saluted the proclamation as yet another step in the direction of truth and justice. His Eminence noted that he was in Sacramento on Monday when the California State Senate and Assembly passed AJR 2 recognizing the Armenian Genocide and calling on President Obama to do the same. The Prelate stressed the importance of acknowledging the Armenian Genocide not just for the Armenian people but for all people, for it is a matter of truth and justice.
