Special events to affect streets south of Melrose Village next two Sundays

Two special events — both to bring attention to the issue of genocide — will be held on the next two Sundays.

The first, this coming Sunday morning, April 17th, is the Los Angeles Walk to End Genocide and Awareness Festival. The center of the event is at the La Brea Tar Pits from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. The walk will take place on portions of 6th St., Fairfax Ave., and 3rd St.:
• 6th St. will be closed between Curson Ave. and Fairfax Ave. from 9 a.m. to noon.
• Fairfax Ave. will be closed between 6th St. and Beverly Blvd. from 9 a.m. to noon.
• 3rd St. will be closed between Fairfax Ave. and The Grove Dr. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The following Sunday, April 24th, will be the Rally for Justice, organized by the Committee to remember the Armenian Genocide, near the Turkish Consolate on Wilshire Blvd. The main stage for the ceremony will be at Crescent Heights Blvd. & Wilshire Blvd. with the ceremony at 1 p.m. Thousands of people are expected to attend this event, so a large section of Wilshire Blvd. — between San Vicente Blvd. and La Brea Ave. — will be closed from early morning until evening.
