Despite rapid growth and professional success, Indian Americans, like other recent immigrant communities, are deeply underrepresented in public service. Indian Americans make up roughly 1/3 of the proportion of state legislative seats, yet hold only 34 of 7,383 seats nationwide.

Indian American Impact (“IMPACT”) and our affiliated organizations are focused on civically engaging the Indian American diaspora and building long-term power among historically excluded communities. Founded in 2016 to help Indian Americans run for office, win, and lead, IMPACT has grown to become the leading national organization mobilizing South Asian communities and electing leaders to public office at the local, state, and federal level.  

Indian American Impact 501(c)(4)

Our central entity, Indian American Impact, is building national infrastructure and chapters in key states such as Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and more. Our organization will leverage our collective power to advocate for policy that closely affects our community. When necessary, IMPACT will join in and support litigation that protects our civil rights, including access to the ballot box.

Indian American Impact Project 501(c)(3)

The Impact Project engages in non-partisan candidate training, civic engagement, and voter registration nationwide.  With a record number of Indian Americans in office and the historic election of Kamala Harris as Vice President, the Impact Project ensures through all of its work that our community’s history and lived experience is understood as essential to the fabric of America. Through the Impact Project, we build civic engagement by tellling the story of the intersecting paths of immigration and civil rights in the United States.

The IMPACT Fund (527)

IMPACT is designed to help elect Indian American and allied candidates running for office to ensure greater representation in the halls of local, state, and federal government. The IMPACT Fund will build coalitions with allied constituencies and boost turnout of AAPI and MASA communities in key states.

With our efforts, we will ensure that Indian American leaders from all sectors are fully represented and heard in national policy conversations, the media, and civic life, and that future generations will have the opportunity to run, win, and lead.
