The Congressional Armenian Caucus has started collecting signatures on bipartisan U.S. House letter calling on President Joe Biden to join with Congress in clearly and directly recognizing the Genocide against Armenians in his April 24 statement, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) reports.

The petition has been initiated by Congressman Adam Schiff, Gus Bilirakis, Frank Pallone Jr., David G. Valadao, Jackie Speier.

Last month, 38 U.S. Senators called on President Biden to do the same.
