Educating primary and secondary school students about human rights and genocide – and in particular the Armenian Genocide – honors the memory of the victims and survivors of that crime while supporting the cause of justice and preventing future atrocities.  Fifteen U.S. states, including the Commonwealth of Virginia, include the Armenian Genocide as part of their school curricula.  Soorp Khatch Armenian Church is working closely with the Greater Washington Armenian National Committee, the Genocide Education Project, and local parishioners to provide instructional materials to local educators and explore ways to mandate Armenian Genocide education in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
