WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) praised Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) for her “efforts [in] combatting genocide denial and promoting the United States and Armenia’s shared democratic principles…”
“Congratulations to you on being honored at the Armenian Assembly of America’s 2019 National Advocacy conference & Gala!” Senator Feinstein said.
“Throughout your service in the House of Representatives, you have tirelessly worked towards reinforcing the United States’ strong cultural and political relationship with Armenia. The work you have accomplished as Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues has distinguished you as a dedicated ally to Armenian communities in the U.S. and throughout the world. There is no doubt that your efforts combatting genocide denial and promoting the United States and Armenia’s shared democratic principles have qualified you to receive this honor,” Senator Feinstein continued.
Congresswoman Speier was honored for her exemplary work in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as her leadership, dedication, and passionate support of Armenia and Artsakh. Armenian American leaders and activists throughout the United States attended the Gala in Washington, D.C., which was part of the Armenian Assembly of America’s 2019 National Advocacy Conference.
“California is lucky to have such a passionate leader, and I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future,” Senator Feinstein added.
