Largest Educators’ Labor Union in the US Distributes Teaching Guide on Armenian Genocide

On the 107th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, more than 3 million National Education Association members received an informational sheet and a digital guide on by the National Education Association on how they can incorporate the Armenian Genocide in their classrooms.

The National Education Association is the largest labor union in the United States, representing public school and university teachers with more than 14,000 communities across the United States.

The guide refers educators to the ANCA-WR’s Education Committee website, offering age-appropriate teaching resources, books, relevant films, and videos. The NEA Guide emphasizes the importance of combating genocide denial and revisionism.

When the U.S. Congress recognized the Armenian Genocide in 2019, it explicitly encouraged education and public understanding of the facts of the Armenian Genocide as a matter of U.S. policy.

In an important step toward this goal, the ANCA worked to introduce the Armenian Genocide Education Act, which has garnered over 40 co-sponsors and seeks to provide $10 million in funding over five years for the Library of Congress to educate Americans about the Armenian Genocide.
