It has been over 30 days that Azerbaijan has enforced a brutal blockade of Artsakh, cutting off the 120,000 indigenous Armenian population from life-saving food and medication as they endure freezing winter conditions. Call Vice-President Harris today and urge the Biden Administration to: -- Publicly condemn Azerbaijan’s closure of the Lachin Corridor, Artsakh’s only humanitarian lifeline to the outside world. -- Launch a U.S. humanitarian airlift to Artsakh’s Stepanakert airport and work with USAID to pre-position emergency relief supplies in Armenia for immediate delivery as soon as Azerbaijan lifts its blockade. -- Cut off all U.S. military aid to Azerbaijan, fully enforcing Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act, investigating Azerbaijani war crimes, and applying Magnitsky and other sanctions against Azerbaijani officials.

Call the White House Comment Line at (202) 456-1111 and leave a message for Vice-President Harris to break Azerbaijan's Artsakh blockade. Your call will be answered between the hours of 11am to 3pm EST on Tuesdays to Thursdays. Please call during that time.
