Assembly's Advocacy Summit 2024 Slated for April 16 & 17




Washington, D.C. - The Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly) will sponsor its annual Spring Advocacy Summit 2024 on Tuesday, April 16, and Wednesday, April 17, where participants from across the country will gather in Washington, D.C. to advocate for pro-Armenian issues on Capitol Hill.


The two-day Summit will include an advocacy briefing and training, as well as a welcome reception the evening of April 16. The next morning, the Assembly will host a breakfast and Hill Day overview, followed by meetings with Members of Congress on Capitol Hill. The Summit will coincide with the Armenian Genocide Commemoration on Capitol Hill, which will take place on Wednesday evening, April 17, where elected officials will share remarks and pay homage to the 1.5 million Armenians massacred during the first genocide of the 20th century.


"The Assembly's Advocacy Summit 2024 is an impactful way for Members of Congress to be informed about issues critical to the Armenian people, and to connect Armenian Americans with their elected officials and congressional staff," said Assembly Congressional Relations Director Mariam Khaloyan. "The Summit follows the Assembly's successful Fall 2023 Advocacy Summit, where over 300 in-person meetings took place, and where Senator Gary Peters (D-MI), announced he was introducing legislation to provide humanitarian assistance to Armenians in Artsakh and prevent additional U.S. assistance to Azerbaijan."


She added: "We look forward to welcoming Armenian American advocates from across the U.S."


Please register here for the Advocacy Summit 2024, which is free and open to the public. Please register to ensure meeting slots with Members of Congress for Hill Day.
