Alexis Halejian spoke on behalf of the AGBU Young Professionals of Greater New York at the Armenian Genocide rally in Times Square on Sunday. The event was attended by hundreds of people and included a wide cross-section of the New York area’s Armenian American community.
Alexis had the following to say about the rally:
As far as you could see behind you, to the side of you and in front of you was a sea of Armenians at the crossroads of the world (and Times Square)…It was extremely inspirational to see the crowd rise to their feet in excitement and hope as each speaker delivered their message. Everyone had something different to say, but the common theme seemed to be, ‘We are proud to be Armenians and will not rest until the issues of our past are recognized and resolved in the future.’
