NEA shall use all existing digital and social media, and email newsletter to promote teaching about the Armenian Genocide by writing an article prior to April 2020, about the history of the Armenian Genocide, including American's assistance of genocide victims and orphans through the Near East Relief. This article should include teaching resources from the Genocide Education Project (www.genocideeducation.org), USC Shoah Foundation (www.sfi.usc.edu), and Near East Foundation (www.neareastmuseum.com).

Rationale/Background

NEA Resolutions B-62 supports genocide acknowledgement and education. The Armenian genocide is a pivotal turning point in history and a prototype for the Holocaust, teaching the dangers of nationalism, crimes against humanity, racial and religious injustices, and life after genocide.
