Colorado’s Armenian community came to the capitol Friday to remember the 1915 genocide. 

As part of the ceremony, Governor John Hickenlooper unveiled a replica of a medieval Armenian headstone, newly installed in the Capitol’s existing Armenian memorial garden. 

Speakers noted that Colorado citizens spoke out publicly against the genocide while it was taking place, and that the state welcomed and honored Armenian survivors afterward.
