LOS ANGELES — The Armenian Women’s Coalition of Los Angeles represents thirteen Armenian Women’s Committees from different organizations . The Coalition’s goal is to collectively prepare and commemorate the Centennial Anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide, as a tribute to the memory of the courageous Women who perished or endured those terrible years.

A special daylong event will be held on January 17, 2015, at Woodbury University in Burbank California. It will include an exhibition, cultural programs, and two multigenerational discussion panels that will cover the topics concerning the road of our existence today and explore the challenges of cultural preservation that we face in our future.

The focus of the day’s events will be to recognize Armenian women’s spirit of determination and their unrelenting belief in the survival of the Armenian heritage, embedded in four thousand years of history.

As Armenian women, we collectively believe that we are the guardians of our heritage and that it is our duty to keep the memory of our martyrs alive. We are working on a Memorial Book as well, the details of which can be found on Facebook Save Our Past, Memorial Book.

We hope that you will appreciate and share the group’s efforts by your generous donations, which will be recognized in our event program. Please make your tax- deductible donations payable to AWC- LA, and mail it to AWC-LA c/o St. Gregory Armenian Church 1510 E. Mountain Ave, Glendale, CA 91207.
