President Biden recognized the Indo-American community in a letter to the president of the Federation of Indian Associations

In his letter, Biden emphasized that he was committed to being the president of all Americans.

“I am confident we can work together to find common ground to make America a more just, prosperous, and secure nation,” Biden wrote.

About 21 lawmakers, including Senator Cory Booker, and other members and women of Congress such as Raja Krishnamoorthi, Mijie Sherrill, Sheila Jackson, Frank Pallone, David Cicilline, Tom Malinowski, Abigail Spanberger, Vincente Gonzalez, Susie Lee, Hakeem Sekou Jeffries, Grace Meng, Debrah Ross, Adriano Espail, Jim McGovern, Matt Cartwright and Jim Langevin attended the event.

Senator Jack Reed and Senator Jeanne Shaheen also sent messages praising the contributions of the Indo-American community in the United States and congratulating India.

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi urged community leaders to help elect other American Indians to the US Congress and other elected bodies.

Historic celebrations such as the Indian flag being raised in Times Square in New York around August 15 this year would be crucial in advancing the journey towards improved India-US relations.

This celebration also proved to be an added boost for Asian American Heritage Month. Abhishek Singh, president of FIA New England, said the Indian community “stands with the Ukrainian community and urges the global community to immediately mourn such human suffering”.
