Hoyer & Democrats Commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Rwandan Genocide

House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) joined Congressmen Emanuel Cleaver (MO-5), Gregory Meeks (NY-5), Danny Davis (IL-7), Peter Welch (VT), Steve Cohen (TN-9) and Bobby Rush (IL-1) to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.  

On April 7th, 1994, Hutu militias ordered the country’s Hutu majority to exterminate the Tutsi ethnic group resulting in the murder of over 800,000 people, mostly ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus, during a 100-day period.
