Established by Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and former Illinois Republican Congressman John Edward Porter in 1995, the Congressional Armenian Caucus has worked tirelessly to:
-- Expand U.S.-Armenia diplomatic, cultural, economic, and military relations
-- Support the right of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic to live in security and freedom
-- Works toward a truthful and just resolution of the Armenian Genocide.
-- Speaks out against the increasing threats of extremist fundamentalism against the Armenian and other Christian communities in the Middle East
-- Supports the economic and cultural development of the predominantly Armenian Samtskhe-Javakheti region of Georgia
Each of these priorities, and all the many others pursued by the Caucus, advance U.S. regional interests, in a strategically significant area of the world, and promote core American values, such as justice, freedom, and democratic development.
The ANCA urge U.S. House Members to join the Congressional Armenian Caucus and lend their voice to expand the U.S.-Armenia relationship, helps secure a truthful and just resolution of the Armenian Genocide; Support Nagorno Karabakh freedom and work to advance the broad range of issues in a bipartisan manner.
