WASHINGTON, DC — Over 250,000 individual messages have been sent via the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) Rapid Responder system to President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, USAID Administrator Samantha Power and the bipartisan leadership of the US Senate and House over the past week, all demanding US leadership in breaking Azerbaijan’s blockade of Artsakh.
“Our day-to-day advocacy with Congress and the Administration is immeasurably strengthened by the steady stream of tens of thousands of emails, calls, and tweets into Washington, DC policymakers,” said ANCA executive director Aram Hamparian. “If you’re not already signed up as an ANCA Rapid Responder, be sure to register today at www.anca.org/Rapid.”
Over 50,000 Armenian and allied Americans, from all 50 states, have signed up as Rapid Responders, authorizing the ANCA to send timely advocacy messages on their behalf. During Azerbaijan’s devastating blockade of Artsakh, these messages have prioritized the following ANCA policy requests of the US government:
– Break Azerbaijan’s blockade of Artsakh
– Stop all US military aid to Azerbaijan
– Send US humanitarian aid to Artsakh
– Sanction Azerbaijani war criminals
In addition to the ANCA Rapid Responder system, thousands have used the ANCA’s online portal to call, tweet and write to the White House and their Congressional leaders to address this enfolding Artsakh humanitarian crisis immediately.
Fifty Senators and Representatives have already condemned Azerbaijan’s blockade, including Senate Foreign Relations Committee chair Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Senate Armed Services Committee chair Jack Reed (D-RI).
