ABOUT US

Headquartered in Washington, DC, the Armenian Assembly of America is the largest, non-partisan Armenian-American advocacy organization in the United States. 

Since 1972, the Assembly continues to promote public awareness of Armenian issues, encourage greater Armenian-American participation in the American democratic process, and assist in humanitarian and development programs in Armenia and Arstakh, while strengthening the U.S.-Armenia and U.S.-Arstakh relationships.

Vision

The Republic of Armenia will be secure and prosperous, made possible by democracy, the rule of law, advanced market reforms and a people in full and vigilant partnership with their government at all levels.

Via the direct participation of its duly elected leaders, Artsakh Republic’s final status – either as an independent state or as an integral and contiguous part of the Republic of Armenia – will be resolved, internationally recognized and guaranteed.

The Diaspora will be a vital partner for Armenia and Artsakh throughout the world and linked together in effective collaboration to advance pan-Armenia interests globally. A Diaspora-wide consensus will have been realized for the Republic of Armenia to deal with historic and contemporary questions that impact all Armenians.

In view of its ongoing growth in size, competence and reach, the Armenian Assembly of America will be the leading champion in deepening the U.S.-Armenia and U.S.-Artsakh relationships and will be in the forefront of a comprehensive, non-partisan, Diaspora-wide effort to irrevocably secure Armenia’s and Artsakh's freedom, democracy and security.
