LOS ANGELES–Alpha Epsilon Omega–The Armenian Fraternity–has launched the `Never Again’ awareness wristband campaign to bring greater awareness to the Armenian Genocide and the struggle for recognition. They will serve as a symbol that recognition of the Armenian genocide is a crucial part in preventing future genocides. The wristbands are a reflection of the spirit of the Armenian culture which has endured the constant pose of denial from the government of Turkey. The wristbands represent the constant reminder to ourselves that history–if not accounted for–is in danger of repeating itself.
The awareness wristbands are in black and have ?NEVER AGAIN’ embossed on one side. Available for purchase from the website–the wristbands are for youth and adults of all ages. All proceeds–including donations generated by the NEVER AGAIN campaign–will go to the Armenian Genocide Museum and Memorial–the Zoryan Institute–and other organizations actively involved in pursuing recognition of the Armenian genocide.
Armenian Genocide Museum and Memorial being part of ANI (Armenian National Institute) is in the forefront of research in the area of the Armenian genocide and the prevention of future genocides. The Zoryan institute funding the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies is also making opportunities for scholars to research and publish in the field of genocide and human rights studies.
