URGENT ACTION ALERT: OPPOSE HR191

FOR TEXAS RESIDENTS ONLY

Dear Assembly Members and Friends:

On January 26, 2017, Texas State Representative Scott Sanford (R) introduced Texas House Resolution 191 (HR191) that once again seeks to legislate the allegations of Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire.

On April 24, 2017, Turkish PAC President Demir Karsan, Turkish Association of Northern Texas (TURANT) President Naci Kavrar, Dr. Ferruh Demirmen, Tekin Kunt and Consulate General of Turkey in Houston testified before the Committee on International Trade and Intergovernmental Affairs during a public hearing and opposed the HR-191. The Committee granted some time for the Texas residents to submit their views and concerns regarding HR-191.

ATAA urges the Turkish American community in Texas
to contact their Representatives immediately to Oppose HR191
