ANCA Eastern Region to bestow Freedom Award to congressional stalwart David Bonior

David Bonior has been a congressional trailblazer on Armenian Genocide reaffirmation efforts as well as a steadfast supporter of Artsakhs inalienable right to self-determination and freedom from the earliest days of the Karabagh movement, said ANC of Michigan chairperson Lara Nercessian.With this award, we honor his leadership and cherish his friendship with the Detroit Armenian community and across the U.S.His commitment to truth and unwavering commitment to genocide justice are the cornerstones to principled policymaking and dedicated community representation so very much needed in Congress today.

Bonior was born on June 6, 1945. He was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 serving as Democratic whip in the House from 1991 to 2002, making him one of the highest-ranking Democrats in the House. While in office, Bonior was a leading force behind passage of Armenian Genocide legislation, co-authoring, co-sponsoring, and repeatedly calling for a full House vote on successive resolutions.In 1988, following the devastating Armenian earthquake, he was instrumental in supporting relief efforts. Later, as Azerbaijan mounted its attack against Armenia and Artsakh, Bonior became a staunch advocate for Karabagh freedom and U.S. assistance to the fledgling state.

The ANCA-ER Freedom Award is presented to individuals who have made tremendous contributions toward recognition of the genocide and who have pursued other issues of importance to the Armenian-American community. Earlier recipients have included renowned lawyer Robert Morgenthau and the Morgenthau family, critically acclaimed author Chris Bohjalian, U.S. Ambassador to Armenia John M. Evans, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and current U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Dr. Samantha Power, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, the late U.S. Senator Edward M.
