Aid to Armenia
“As the current Administration seeks to reduce foreign aid across the board, we must ensure that Armenia has the resources to address the compelling humanitarian needs as a result of the current refugee crisis and Turkey’s blockade, as well as Azerbaijan’s ongoing and deadly ceasefire violations."
Armenian Genocide Recognition
"At a time when Christians and minority communities continue to be in imminent danger and under constant attack, the President's statement on the Armenian Genocide fails to stand up for human rights and is inconsistent with American values, and represents the same kind of capitulation to Turkish authoritarianism which will cost more lives."
Unequivocally affirming the Armenian Genocide would honor the more than 1.5 million Armenians who were massacred. It would also serve to remember this proud chapter in America's history of helping to save the survivors. We must remember atrocities to prevent them from occurring again.
Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues
The Congressional Armenian Issues Caucus works to strengthen the ties between the U.S. and Armenia and keep members of Congress engaged on Armenia-related issues. The Caucus advocates for increased trade and assistance to Armenia, self-determination for Artsakh and supporting U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide. The coordinated efforts of this diverse coalition of Congressional friends of Armenia and the Armenian American community help to raise awareness of Armenian American issues on Capitol Hill, with the White House, and with the American people.
