Our Mission

We believe that an extraordinary and newsworthy event has the power to shake the world into awareness.
In 2015 it will be the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, and yet genocides are still affecting countless lives and communities.
Some massacres have gained worldwide notoriety but many have been swept aside leaving survivors to suffer in silence.
