KAYSER CARRIES 100-YEAR REMEBERANCE OF ARMENIAN GENOCIDE MOTION AT LAUSD SCHOOL BOARD
Los Angeles – On April 14, 2015, Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board member Bennett Kayser authored and carried legislation at the school board recognizing the one hundred year anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. It was passed was 7-0.
“As a man of Jewish heritage, I must speak up on behalf of the Armenian community and those I represent. Just as there are Holocaust deny-ers, there are Armenian Genocide deny-ers. I am saddened that this nation has failed to accurately acknowledge the terrible, in-humane event that occurred one hundred years ago. As a school board member, I will continue the struggle to educate our children so the past is not repeated.”
Board member Kayser will join Armenian American community leaders and Council member Mitch O’Farrell and Mayor Eric Garcetti at Remembrance events later this week.
