On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the 8th Annual Philadelphia Armenian Genocide Walk will take place, providing an opportunity for the entire Philadelphia community to gather to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
We would like to announce the host for this year’s Centennial Program, Eva Pilgrim of the 6abc Action News team. Eva’s reporting has earned her several journalism awards, including an Emmy nomination in 2011 from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. We are honored to have her take part in our event this seminal year.
The walk will take place in historical Philadelphia, where hundreds will gather at the Independence Visitor Center and walk through the streets to rally and raise awareness for the cause. At the conclusion of the walk, a special program will be held on the lawn of the Independence Visitor Center. Along with Eva Pilgrim, this year’s keynote speaker will be Phil Holtje of the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center.
