The campaign aimed to raise awareness of the Armenian citizens on the urgency of adopting the law and its role. As well as show the community the vitality of it. Over the years, various myths and misinformation have been spread about the topic. It served as a way to eliminate any related myths, misinformation, and miscommunication.
