Congresswoman Katherine Clark

The following announcement was provided by the office of Congresswoman Katherine Clark:

Assistant Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Katherine Clark (MA-5) released the following statement to mark the 107th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, which is Sunday, April 24, 2022. Last year, President Joe Biden declared that the Ottoman Empire’s killing of 1.5 million Armenians was an act of genocide, an official recognition that Clark has supported throughout her career in Congress. Watertown, in Massachusetts’ Fifth Congressional district, is home to the third largest Armenian community in the United States.

“As we mark the 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, we recognize this dark chapter in our world’s history and renew our commitment to preventing atrocities of this magnitude from ever happening again. The Armenian Genocide is not an opinion – its facts are undisputed, and the legacy of this trauma cannot be erased. These crimes against humanity must be remembered and spoken about truthfully if we are to heal and learn from history.

“My own Congressional district is home to Watertown, Massachusetts, a hub of Armenian life and culture. I have had the privilege of getting to know many members of the Armenian community, and their strength and resilience is an example to us all. I will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Armenian people to fight for truth, justice, and a recommitment to peace.”

Clark is an original cosponsor of the Armenian Genocide Education Act, new legislation to give teachers across the United States the resources they need to educate students on the atrocities of the Armenian Genocide and the consequences of intolerance and hate.

  1. Try spending your time doing something constructive about I don’t know…inflation, crime, welfare fraud, term limits, social media censorship, voting integrity, etc, etc, etc

    • Genocide isn’t important? Especially given what is going on in Ukraine right now? I think that you lack understanding. Maybe you should speak to folks who have witnessed genocide and have found refuge in our country.

    • So Dickie, I guess supporting people who have been denied their history by the lying guilty is not a worthwhile cause for you. What would you do to address inflation, crime, welfare fraud, term limits etc.
      Republicans always like to make empty claims that somebody else isn’t doing so and so but never do they doing anything except give more money to the rich and less for the ordinary people.

    • This is what people say when they don’t like or support a politician. As if her making a statement about the genocide means she is doing nothing else. What nonsense!

  2. Is it a coincidence that Katherine Clark is frequently in the news now around Watertown? I think not as she will be up for reelection soon and she wants Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s job. Just saying!
