The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) will host an online panel discussion on Saturday, January 21, 2023, at 12 noon Eastern / 9 am Pacific, entitled “The Blockade of Artsakh and Global Indifference.” Register on Zoom.
The 44-day war launched against Artsakh in September 2020 and the alarming developments since then underscore the urgent need for accurate information. Here are links to credible sources, including reports, articles, statements, legal petitions, and other materials complied by NGOs, educational institutions, news media, religious organizations, and others.
The Board of Directors of the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research has responded to the overwhelming need for humanitarian relief in Artsakh and Armenia by pledging $121,100 as a matching contribution for gifts to the Armenia Fund. We urge you to give whatever you can and double the impact with this match. The campaign will run through November 20, 2020.
"A global pandemic, economic crises, protests for racial justice, wildfires and hurricanes forcing people to flee their homes and businesses, and an impending election in the US. These are just some of the events taking place right now. And, in the midst of this, a violent conflict is taking place between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh. It is a humanitarian crisis. We know from history that mass violence does not take place when it is convenient, in peace, when we are prepared to act. It often happens when the world is distracted, when we are busy and exhausted."
NAASR stands with Armenians across the globe in condemning Turkey and Azerbaijan’s all-out war against Armenia and Artsakh. In this time of crisis, we have received numerous inquiries about the best way to help and offer support.
