Unified Young Armenians (UYA) (Armenian: Միացյալ Հայ Երիտասարդներ), is an independent organization made up of a young cadre of young and professional Armenians.
The Organization aims to give young Armenians a voice in the current affairs by organizing them into an efficient and capable force for positive change.
For over a decade, we fought against historical injustices (i.e. Armenian Genocide Recognition), as well as the modern day injustices (i.e. Genocide in Darfur, Sudan). While more needs to be done, we have achieved great success. We have involved well over 500 young people in our quest for justice, giving them a voice on a number of important issues. During this time, we successfully mobilized and united the community for collective action.
Since day one, as a fully independent organization, Unified Young Armenians (UYA) has fought long and hard in defense of human rights. Regardless of the numerous opposing socio-political currents which have time and again sought to alter our path, we have always remained independent and loyal to our ideals. And that will never change.
