Understanding the Armenian Genocide presents a critical opportunity for exploring diasporan identity, generational trauma, and the foundations of human rights and humanitarian endeavors today. Though it is now often referred to as a "hidden" or "forgotten" genocide, the Armenian Genocide was once widely covered in the news of the day. In fact, American humanitarian efforts were some of the largest in history. Using primary sources and critical literacy skills, explore the history of the Armenian Genocide and its enduring legacy on international justice.
This workshop is directed towards educators in Southern California. Educator applications within California, but outside Southern California, will be contacted for review.
