Hellenic America Leadership Council (HALC) urges Greek Americans to ask their Representative to co-sponsor this important genocide bill, House Resolution 220 is a bill pending in Congress which would recognize the genocide of Armenians, Greeks, and others at the hands of the Ottoman Empire:
That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States, in seeking to prevent war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against Christians, Yezidis, Muslims, Kurds, and other vulnerable religious and ethnic groups in the Middle East, should draw upon relevant lessons of the United States Government, civil society, and humanitarian response to the Armenian Genocide, Seyfo, and the broader genocidal campaign by the Ottoman Empire against Armenians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriacs, Greeks, Pontians and other Christians upon their biblical era homelands.
“Similar bills have been introduced for decades, but the Turkish lobby is powerful. That’s why we need your help. Please send a letter to your Representative asking them to co-sponsor this important bill”, said Endie Zemenides, HALC’s Executive Director.
