Two crucial ANCA-backed amendments, both set to come before the U.S. House this coming week, are under attack from Congressman Hal Rogers (R-KY), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee.
Help us fight back by asking your U.S. Representative to vote "Yes" on these two pro-Armenian amendments to the the Fiscal Year 2020 foreign aid (H.R. 2740).
— Aid to Artsakh: Amendment #103, spearheaded by Rep. TJ Cox (D-CA), with the support of Congressional Armenian Caucus leaders Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA), allocates $1.5 million in FY2020 to ensure continued funding for de-mining projects in Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh), and support for regional rehabilitation services for infants, children, and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities.

— Aid to Armenia: Amendment #84, spearheaded by Congressional Armenian Caucus Co-Chair Jackie Speier (D-CA), with the support of fellow Caucus leaders Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Adam Schiff (D-CA), would allocate $40 million in U.S. assistance for democracy programs in Armenia.
