Armenian genocide centennial billboards to be placed throughout Valley

More than 50 billboards will be put along Highway 99 and other Valley highways commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

The billboards, funded by the Armenian Genocide Centennial — Fresno Committee, will honor the memory of the 1.5 million Armenians who were massacred by the Ottoman Turkish government from 1915 to 1923. The billboard’s design will also promote the new genocide monument being unveiled at Fresno State on April 23.
