2015 Events

Colorado shined in 2015 with groundbreaking events in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide. Educational events included internationally-known speakers Dr. David Fulton – regional director of Facing History & Ourselves, David Barsamian – founder of Alternative Radio, Hratch Kozibeyokian – expert of Armenian Orphan Rugs, and Dr. Susan Pattie – expert of genocide-era artifacts. Centennial highlights included the April 21 premiere of Emmy-winning composer Denise Gentilini’s I AM ALIVE Musical at the Newman Center for Performing Arts and the April 24 Armenian Genocide Khachkar Memorial Unveiling by Governor John Hickenlooper. To thank Colorado for its unmatched support for Armenian Genocide victims since 1915, AOC and ANCA-Colorado hosted a Colorado We Thank You gala in September.
