Armenian Assembly of America Statement

The Armenian Assembly of America calls for universal condemnation of the provocative hate crimes committed at two Armenian schools in Los Angeles, California – Holy Martyrs Ferrahian High School in Encino and the AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School in Canoga Park – wherein individuals trespassed on private property and hung Turkish flags.

We urge a swift investigation and that the perpetrators are prosecuted and punished. We appreciate the Members of Congress that have stood in solidarity with the Armenian American community and would also like to thank the Command Staff of the Los Angeles Police Department, as well as Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz (5th District) and the Councilmember’s Director of Public Safety Gregory Martayan for their response and efforts.
