WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement:

“Today, I proudly say ‘Oorakh Angakhootyan Or,’ as we recognize the 23rd anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Armenia.

“The road to independence has not been easy, but time has proven that Armenians are survivors— survivors of genocide, hostile neighbors, economic boycotts and foreign blockades. Armenian-Americans continue to demonstrate what a precious and vital asset they are to our society, breaking new ground socially, economically and politically in California and across the United States and the world.”
