The ANCA Endowment is working to end U.S. complicity in Turkey’s denial of the Armenian Genocide, and toward a principled American policy in support of a truthful and just resolution of this crime that requires the government of Turkey to meet its full moral and material obligations to the Armenian nation.
In support of these aims, we have:
- Built a powerful bipartisan Congressional constituency that – despite Turkey’s multi-million dollar campaign of denial – understands both the facts of the Armenian Genocide and also the moral imperative of properly condemning and commemorating this crime.
- Educated members of the influential U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, in support of their favorable consideration of Armenian Genocide recognition efforts in 2000, 2005, 2007 and 2010.
- Worked with governors, legislators, coalitions, and civil society groups in the 42 U.S. States that have officially recognized the Armenian Genocide.
- Informed Senators and citizens about the negative implications of President’s George W. Bush’s flawed and ultimately failed 2006 nomination of Richard Hoagland, who denied the Armenian Genocide during his confirmation process, as U.S. Ambassador to Armenia.
- Supported the inclusion of Armenian Genocide education programs in U.S. public schools and universities.
