Additionally, there will be a genocide memorial set up on the grass area in between Doe Library and Memorial Glade during the entire week. This year’s memorial will be a replica of Tsitsernakapert, the monument in Armenia which honors the victims of the Armenian Genocide. A pamphlet will be available at the memorial with more information.
We’ll be tabling on Sproul through the end of GAW as well as guarding our memorial 24/7 so feel free to stop by any time. T-shirts will be available this year for $7. We look forward to seeing you all throughout the week!
