This Thanksgiving: Watch, Act, Connect

This Thanksgiving: Watch, Act, Connect

Thanksgiving’s a really great opportunity for you to reach out to family and friends about the challenges facing the Armenian people.

This warm and wonderful holiday, which brings together loved ones from far and wide, serves, in many ways, as a powerful chance for our families to connect both to our roots and our common future.

The family gatherings taking place this Thursday, will, in literally hundreds of thousands of Armenian American homes, represent a vital bridge and meeting place between those more actively engaged in Armenian American civic life and those less aware of these issues or not as involved in the Armenian Cause.

With these thoughts in mind, the ANCA offers the following three suggestions:

1) Watch

Be sure to watch the Armenia Fund Telethon and support its efforts to strengthen the city of Shushi –

2) Act

Take a photo of your family holding up a small sign saying: “President Obama, Recognize the Armenian Genocide,” (or the message of your choice), and email it to

3) Connect

Take a moment to talk to your relatives about the latest news on Armenian issues and the efforts by Armenian American organizations to seek truth, justice, strength, and security for the Armenian nation. Explore the ANCA website for interesting discussion items. Read more. . .
