The ANCA closely tracks the performance of every incumbent Senator and Representative across a broad array of pro-Armenian legislative metrics, carefully scores and objectively grades each legislator, and then – as a public service to voters interested in factoring our insights into the diverse set of criteria they consider when voting – widely circulates non-biased, fact-driven, merit-based Report Cards and Endorsements each election cycle.

Halfway through the Congressional term, in February 2022, the ANCA also provides a mid-term progress report on the legislator's performance on pro-Armenian priorities. Final grades for the legislative term and endorsements will be shared in October, 2022.

11/19/19 - Rep. Frankel tweeted "We can't be silent as Azerbaijan ignores gender-based violence & persecutes #womenrights defenders. Today, we sent a letter to @SecPompeo to press Azerbaijan to allow women’s rights activists freedom of assembly & to address pervasive violence against women." View the tweet here.

11/13/19 - Rep. Frankel tweeted "Rewarding #Erdogan with a White House meeting is shameful, especially w/ reports that groups under Turkey’s direction are committing human rights violations in Syria. Congress condemned Turkey’s invasion, and we will not stand by as Trump continues to betray our Kurdish friends" View the tweet here.

11/13/19 - Rep. Frankel tweeted "It's even more unbelievable that Trump would encourage #Erdogan to only call on “friendly journalists”, when #Turkey jails more journalists than any other countries in the world. It sends an alarming message about U.S. respect for freedom of the press." View the tweet here.

10/29/19 - Rep. Frankel posted the following to Facebook: "Giving Turkey the green light to invade Syria will go down in history as a moral and strategic disaster. Today, I’m joining with members from both sides of the aisle to impose targeted sanctions against Turkey for its invasion of Syria and require the Trump Administration to develop a plan to support our Kurdish partners that we abandoned."

10/29/19 - Rep. Frankel posted the following to Facebook: "In 2014, I had the somber privilege of participating in a ceremony to commemorate the anniversary of the #ArmenianGenocide in Yerevan, Armenia. We honored the lives of 1.5 million Armenians who were killed at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. Acknowledging this crime against humanity is a moral imperative, and today I voted to formally recognize the #ArmenianGenocide. Ignoring this horrific genocide paves the way for future atrocities. In fact, when Hitler was planning the Holocaust he said, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?’’ Through education and accountability, we can pursue justice for the victims and prevent future atrocities. #NeverAgain" View the Facebook post here.

10/21/19 - Rep. Frankel posted the following to Facebook: "This weekend, women in #Azerbaijan protested against rampant domestic violence. They faced a police ban, detention, & heavy-handed tactics, and nevertheless they persisted. It’s a clear reminder of why we MUST stand up for #womensrights around the world."
