Armenian History Month is recognized annually each April to honor the unique culture and societal contributions of the Armenian community, and to also commemorate on April 24th, the more than 1 million lives lost during the Armenian Genocide.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that today roughly 1.2 million Armenian Americans live in the United States. Los Angeles, California is home to the largest Armenian population in the world outside of Armenia, with an estimated 214,628 living in the county. In April 2021, The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion authored by Supervisors Kathryn Barger and Janice Hahn to honor L.A. County’s Armenian community by proclaiming April as Armenian History Month.
