CANDLELIGHT VIGIL IN MEMORY OF THE VICTIMS OF THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE Unified Young Armenians Dedicate a Night of Remembrance for the Victims of the Armenian Genocide Glendale, CA – In honor of the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide, Unified Young Armenians (UYA) has organized a candlelight vigil. The Armenian-American community will rally to honor the memory of their massacred ancestors. It will take place on April 23, 2019 at 6:30 P.M. in the City of Glendale, CA at the Parcher Plaza, Glendale City Hall, 613 East Broadway, Glendale, CA 91206. This year marks the 104th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. On April 24, 1915, 1.5 million Armenian men, women, and children living in the Ottoman Empire were mercilessly annihilated, murdered, and raped. Most of the survivors were left orphaned and rebuild their lives away from the homeland, in many countries around the world, including the United States of America. With UYA’s leadership, the Armenian-American community congregates on the eve of the Armenian Genocide to honor the memory of their ancestors with a candlelight vigil. UYA is a non-partisan, non-religious, and a non-profit grassroots youth organization. Its goal is to encourage activism among the Armenian youth, while advocating justice and human rights. It upholds the power of knowledge and education. UYA’s mission is to serve the collective good and to promote a world free of genocides.
