Who We Are


The National Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide Centennial (NCAGC) began with the united efforts of the Diocese and Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Churches of America, East and West. The NCAGC provides a unique opportunity to bring together Armenians from across the United States and Diaspora in remembering and honoring those lost in the Genocide 100 years ago. With a unity of spirit and purpose, the events also serve to raise awareness of the Genocide and to thank the institutions and individuals who have helped Armenians to survive and thrive.
