Indiaspora Announces Inaugural Ball To Honor President Obama

Indian Americans to Celebrate Their Arrival on the National Stage in Washington

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Indiaspora, founded by community leaders to unite Indian Americans, announced the Indiaspora 2013 Inaugural Ball to honor President Obama's second term as President of the United States.  Indian Americans and well-wishers from around the globe will celebrate the community's success and the re-election of President Obama at a formal cross-cultural gala on January 19, 2013 at the Mandarin Oriental Washington, D.C. 

Join the world's oldest and largest democracies in congratulating President Barack Obama as he is sworn in to his second term as President of the United States. For information on how to attend, visit: http://www.indiaspora.org/inauguration

As Indian Americans play a larger role in national politics, they are enjoying:
  • A big "thank you" from President Obama  - A  new study shows 75 percent of Indian Americans in swing states supported the president's re-election.
  • A presence in national politics and more – Californian Dr. Ami Bera was  elected to the House of Representatives, the third Indian American to be elected to Congress. And from across the country 16 others were able to join the ranks of elected public servants.
  • A bigger role in campaign fundraising –  Experts say Indian Americans are  raising more money than ever for candidates on both sides of the aisle in local, state-wide and national races.

With the highest median income and educational attainment amongst all Asian Americans according to a recent Pew Center study, the community's political prominence now matches that of Indian Americans in other disciplines.

The Indiaspora Inaugural Ball will serve as a catalyst for:
  • Supporting Indian American candidates at all levels of American government regardless of party affiliation
  • Raising the awareness and resources needed to  take care of the underprivileged and "invisibles" in the U.S. community
  • A kick-start for President Obama's  second-term "strategic partnership" with India
  • A strong commitment from our Indian compatriots that  reform policies will be carried through
  • An effective set of  philanthropic models  that can serve as a bridge  between the U.S. and India

The evening of festivities will underscore the strengths and benefits of the U.S.- India relationship. The many bridges which connect the two countries - spanning cultural, business, educational, healthcare and philanthropic traditions - will be on prominent display against the backdrop of President Obama's second term inaugural.

About Indiaspora Founded in 2012 by M.R. Rangaswami under the auspices of the nonprofit SHG Foundation, Indiaspora aims to unite the professionally, geographically and religiously diverse community of Indian Americans by identifying issues, debating outcomes and recommending actionable solutions.
