The Indian American Friendship Council
This section chronicles the saga of the Indian American Friendship Council. Founded in 1990, The Indian American Friendship Council (IAFC) has grown from a one-man team to one that has chapters in nearly all 50 states of the United States of America. Over the years, the IAFC has been the leading Indian American group promoting relations between India and the United States. It has become the backbone of the largest Caucus on the Hill, The Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans, which has nearly 200 members.
The achievements of the IAFC and the accolades it has won are numerous. It has become the pioneer organization that showcases India and its issues facing India to the lawmakers in this country. The annual IAFC Legislative Conference, held each summer in Washington, D.C., is attended by a galaxy of Congressional leaders.
This segment of the book is a reflection of the American Dream of building a bridge that has become a reality.
