Supporting the Community

Indiaspora champions well-qualified Indian Americans to who want to serve for their country in various capacities.

When Rich Verma was nominated by President Obama to be the first Indian American Ambassador to India, Indiaspora was one of the first organizations to come out in strong support of his nomination.

President Obama nominated Vivek Murthy for the post of United States Surgeon General in November 2013. Indiaspora worked with the larger community to organize a grassroots campaign to get Dr. Murthy confirmed. He received tremendous support from Indian Americans across the United States who let their Senators know how important this was to our community. The hard fought victory has galvanized the community to continue to do more.
