Designate the month of August as Armenian American Heritage Month

    1. Petition by

      Glendale, CA

We are calling on President Obama and the U.S. Congress to designate the month of August as Armenian American Heritage Month. We are also calling on Representative Adam Schiff (CA-29), a leader in Congress on Armenian American issues, to introduce and sponsor the bill that would allow this to occur.

Armenian Americans have been living in the United States for generations. Their contributions to this country span the fields of business, science, law, medicine, public service and the arts. Armenian American culture has also benefited the United States by promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, social justice, and tolerance for people of all backgrounds. It would be most appropriate to have a month dedicate to the culture and achievements of Armenian Americans.
