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.

Instead, the president continues to demonstrate an uncanny ability to get steamrolled by autocrats like Erdogan and Putin without getting anything in return.

But he’s not joining them in London when they play the Washington Wizards for the NBA’s Global Games series because he has legitimate fears for his safety. Enes Kanter is a Turkish citizen. He has been an outspoken critic of President Erdogan. And that’s why he fears that Turkish agents might follow him to London. Turkey is a democracy with a long tradition of tolerance of civic discourse and a valued NATO ally in many endeavors, but the current Turkish government under President Erdogan is on an anti-democratic spiral. Thank you Enes Kanter for coming here to the Senate to talk about why it’s so important to push Turkey to uphold human rights." View the Facebook post here.
