ANCA-WR TO HOST TOWN HALL MEETING IN SEATTLE AREA

Los Angeles, CA – True to its grassroots, the ANCA will continue its
road trip around the Western United States, now with a stop in the
state of Washington. On Sunday, June 2, 2013 at 12:00PM the Armenian
National Committee of American – Western Region (ANCA-WR) will host
its next Town Hall at the Holy Resurrection Armenian Apostolic Church
located in Redmond, Washington.

`The town hall meetings play a key role in connecting with the
different communities in the region and learning about their needs and
interests, while also serving as an opportunity to engage them in
initiatives taken on by the ANCA,’ stated ANCA-WR Executive Director
Elen Asatryan. `I look forward to meeting community members in the
great state of Washington and developing a long term working
relationship with them as we continue to plant the seeds of activism
in that area,’ added Asatryan.

The ANCA-WR Town Hall series is an effort to reactivate and engage
Armenian American communities throughout the Western United
States. The meetings are led by ANCA-WR senior staff and Executive
Board members, who provide attendees with an overview of the
organization, its priorities, and recent developments affecting
Armenian-Americans, Armenia and Artsakh. After the presentation,
attendees have an opportunity to ask questions, discuss issues of
concern, and make recommendations.

The June 2nd Town Hall Meeting will be led by ANCA-WR Executive
Director Elen Asatryan and ANCAWR Legislative Affairs Director Haig
Baghdassarian.

`It’s vital that we connect with all our Armenian communities in the
United States, making them aware that there is an organization
fighting for justice of the Genocide and other issues of concern,’
stated Baghdassarian.

The Washington state Town Hall is preceded by those held in Phoenix,
AZ, Las Vegas, NV, Fresno, CA, San Francisco, CA, and Boise, Idaho.

The Armenian National Committee of America-Western Region is the
largest and most influential Armenian American grassroots advocacy
organization in the Western United States. Working in coordination
with a network of offices, chapters, and supporters throughout the
Western United States and affiliated organizations around the country,
the ANCA-WR advances the concerns of the Armenian American community
on a broad range of issues.
