BOSTON – During March and April 2021, on the eve of the 106th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Peace of Art www.peaceofart.org continues its annual campaign by erecting electronic billboards on busy highways in various cities in the state of Massachusetts, in the United States of America. The message on this year’s billboards is “Mr. President, with honor, dignity and courage, recognize the Armenian Genocide.”
Daniel Varoujan Hejinian, the founding president of Peace of Art Inc., recently said, “Mr. Biden sponsored numerous bills in favor of recognizing the Armenian Genocide, as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Most recently, during the campaign for president, Mr. Biden promised to recognize the Armenian Genocide and to make human rights a priority if elected president. The Armenian Genocide is a human rights issue. We hope President Biden will have the courage to keep his promise and on the 24th of April recognize the Armenian Genocide.”
