SOAR - São Paulo Chapter

São Paulo joined the SOAR family in September 2014. Armenian immigrants in Brazil gather mostly in and around the city of São Paulo, where there are churches, cultural centers, and even a metro station named “Armênia.” The Armenian community maintains a strong presence in the city, albeit not in the country as a whole. Armenians in Latin America arranged a demonstration in São Paulo at the Armenian Genocide monument on April 24,1965, of the 50th Anniversary of putting into force the Law of Relocation, and a play titled “The Adventures of Armenians 1915” was written and performed by Armenians of Brazil at a theater in São Paulo.
