BREAKING NEWS: U.S. House Officially Recognizes 1915 Armenian Genocide.

H. Res. 296., the bill affirming United States recognition of the Armenian Genocide, has passed.

This measure (H.Res.296) would establish, as a matter of U.S. policy, 1) the rejection of Armenian Genocide denial, 2) ongoing official U.S. government recognition and remembrance of this crime, and 3) support for education about the Armenian Genocide in order to help prevent modern-day atrocities.

Led by House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Florida Republican Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) – the Armenian Genocide Resolution has been gaining momentum in the past week, particularly following Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria. The measure currently has 130 co-sponsors, including House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Eliot Engel (D-NY), House Rules Committee Chair Jim McGovern (D-MA), and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Republican Devin Nunes (R-CA).

A similar version in the Senate (S.Res.150) – led by Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) – has 18 co-sponsors and continues to attract growing support.
