On September 21st, the ANCA announced its 2016 Congressional endorsements, throwing the Armenian American community’s political and electoral strength behind U.S. House and Senate candidates from more than 30 states with proven track records of support on issues of special concern to Armenian Americans and all friends of Armenia.

The ANCA endorsements are based primarily on ANCA Congressional Report Cards, a detailed review of each incumbent’s record across a broad range of Armenian American issues. These Report Cards, prepared in consultation with ANCA Regional offices and local chapters across the country, cover issues ranging from securing a just resolution of the Armenian Genocide, to strengthening U.S.-Armenia relations, defending Nagorno Karabakh’s independence, increasing U.S. aid and trade levels with Armenia, and confronting the genocide of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.

Don’t see your Congressional candidates’ names on the ANCA Endorsement list?  Check out their ANCA Congressional Report Card to see where they stand on Armenian American concerns.  Have additional questions?  Email anca@anca.org or give us a call at (202) 775-1918.
