Glendale, CA – On April 17th, Unified Young Armenians ("UYA") was invited to Department of Homeland Security ("DHS"), United States Citizenship and Immigration Service ("USCIS") office in Chatsworth, CA, to make a presentation on the topic of the Armenian Genocide.
Having no official recognition from the United States government, UYA was given a rare opportunity to educate the employees of federal government about the history of the Armenian people and raise awareness about the Armenian Genocide.
President of UYA Aroutin Hartounian, Esq., Director of Public Relations Milena Mailyan, Esq., and Director of Policy Vilen Khachatryan attended the presentation and delivered an engaging discussion of the history of Armenians while primarily focusing on the Armenian Genocide.
At the conclusion of the presentation, Director of Chatsworth USCIS office Roland Lyons was awarded with a Certificate of Appreciation. UYA thanked Mr. Lyons for affording his employees the opportunity to learn about the Armenian Genocide and understand why its recognition and proper classification is important not just for the Armenians but for everyone around the world.
UYA would like to express its sincerest appreciation to Mr. Lyons for the amazing opportunity as well as Stephanie Nguyen, Anahit Petrosyan, Raffi Melkonian, Naira Tarloyan, Raffi Beloryan, Nick Abrahamian, Julie Dunn, Gregorio Castro and Hrayr Pogosyan.
