Indian American politicians are starting to make an impact at the highest level of government, and organizations are building up in support.
Salas went to an Indian American Impact Fund event in Washington, DC that was billed as the largest collection of Indian American electeds and candidates in the history of America. Around 90 politicians were present, and the total audience was close to 200. All 5 Indian American US Congress people (Kamala Harris, Pramila Jayapal, Ami Bera, Ro Khanna, and Raja Krishnamoorthi) had featured speeches, as did “honorary desi” Cory Booker.
Salas and Ragz used the occasion to recap their own history and involvement in South Asian American organizations since college.
