The National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) is deeply grateful to the Mass Cultural Council Cultural Facilities Fund, MassDevelopment and Governor Charlie Baker for supporting cultural institutions so generously to benefit the entire state.
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 grant for “The Avedis Derounian Archive at NAASR: A Vital Resource on US-Based Extremism,” is part of a new round of Mass Humanities grant-making, totaling more than $250,000 to 59 cultural organizations to reach their audiences digitally due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with funding provided through the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
We applaud President Biden’s willingness to speak the truth about the Armenian Genocide and to strike a blow against the denial of historical facts. This recognition is a long time in coming from a U.S. President. Historians, scholars, eye-witnesses and survivors, religious figures, and even the U.S. Congress have already recognized the Armenian Genocide as an established fact.
