This April – more than any other – we see with our own eyes (know in our hearts) that the Genocide never ended.
It continues to this very day.
Instead of Abdul Hamid or Talaat Pasha, it’s Erdogan and Ilham Aliyev.
Different names, same aim – to destroy.
To deface our culture. Replace our people. Erase our memory.
They are hell-bent on emptying our homeland. Ending our heritage.
One hundred million Turks and Azeris – backed by foreign mercenaries – seizing vast areas of Artsakh – committing war crimes, killing thousands – then celebrating our deaths.
Now they’re targeting the southern Syunik (Zangezur) region of Armenia, to realize their twisted Pan-Turkish dreams.
Artsakh’s survival, Armenia’s security, the viability of our ancient Armenian nation is at stake.
We are facing a national crisis.
An existential challenge. Nothing less.
Which is why we need your financial support now more than ever:
— To protect our sacred homeland.
— To secure humanitarian assistance for Artsakh.
— To enforce sanctions on Aliyev and Erdogan.
— To block military sales to Baku and Ankara.
— To secure the release of Armenian prisoners.
— To protect Armenian churches and holy sites.
And, finally to have the White House join the Congress in rejecting Turkey’s Armenian Genocide gag-rule – locking-in for all time U.S. government-wide condemnation and commemoration of this still unpunished crime against humanity.
Recognition of Turkey’s genocidal intent is more vital than ever – not simply to honor our past but to safeguard our future.
Our struggle is for tomorrow.
But to wage it wisely, we must understand our past.
And we must face the hard and painful truth: Erdogan sees Artsakh and Armenia as “Remnants of the Sword,” the leftovers the Turks didn’t get around to killing in 1915.
Erdogan’s proud to finish the work his forefathers started, reveling in the genocidal destruction of Armenians across yet another historic region of our sacred homeland.
We must do all in our power to stop Erdogan and his ally Aliyev.
Before it’s too late.
We must do more, engaging in every way to save Armenia, our blockaded, landlocked, partitioned genocide-survivor state.
You know that sacrifice remains the requirement of Armenia’s survival. Selfless service has been a constant through the trials and triumphs of our long history – from Avarayr and Sardarabad to this very day.
Without sacrifice we cannot survive.
That is the hard truth. And we must face it head on.
To empower our work today and sustain our cause for decades to come.
All our pro-Armenian work – including our longer-term investment in youth training and political job placement – is possible because of your faith, your friendship, and your financial support.
