In this exceedingly challenging time for Armenians everywhere, we thank you for your support and ask for your help to ensure continuation of our work bringing live, online programming to an international audience focusing on Artsakh and Armenia as well as enduring aspects of Armenian art, culture, and history.
The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) has raised $314,625 for the Armenia Fund to address the overwhelming need for humanitarian and educational relief in Artsakh and Armenia arising from the devastation of the all-out war launched against Artsakh on September 27, 2020. NAASR reached this total through a generous matching campaign from the NAASR Board of Directors.
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."
