Times Square Armenian Genocide Commemoration

  • Times Square Times Square New York, NY

Join thousands to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the crossroads of the world in Times Square, New York, on Sunday, April 23, 2017 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

While a century has passed, the Armenian Diaspora continues its unyielding efforts to remember, to honor and to educate the world about this catastrophic event in Armenian history that claimed the lives of close to 2 million Armenians -- a piece of history that goes unrecognized to this day by the Turkish government.

Let us come together in solidarity alongside noted politicians, academics and artists to show the world we will continue to remember and to honor the victims of the Armenian Genocide while advancing our fight towards global recognition. 

The annual Armenian Genocide Commemoration in Times Square is sponsored by the Knights of Vartan and Daughters of Vartan, a national
fraternal organization, and co-sponsored by the Armenian General Benevolent Union, Armenian Assembly of America, Armenian National Committee of America,
Armenian Democratic Liberal Party, and the Armenian Council of America; participating organizations include the Diocese of the Armenian Church, Prelacy of the Armenian Church, Armenian Missionary Association of America,
Armenian Missionary Association, Armenian Evangelical Union, Armenian Catholic Eparchy, and several national Armenian youth organizations.
