Yerazad is excited to be participating in ReflectSpace’s Digital Installation Sites of Fracture: Diasporic Imaginings of Occupied Artsakh. Check out Yerazad’s piece in the installation entitled “Images of Crossing.”
Yerazad is a combination of two words in Armenian – yeraz/Երազ which means dream and azad/ազատ which means free.
Our action coalition is dedicated both to dreaming and to freedom.
Our areas of focus are coalition building, policy action, and environmental justice.
We see all these as essential to achieving Armenian liberation.
Yerazad has three areas of focus.
