Indian Americans in the Obama/Biden Administration: Our Joy and Pride!!

Washington, D.C. September 2, 2009: The South Association Bar Association of Washington, D.C. and the North American South Asian Bar Association invited the leadership of the IALC to celebrate an evening reception honoring South Asian American appointees to the Obama administration at the Law Offices of DLA Piper in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Kamala Edwards, President of the IALC was virtually 'mobbed' by the attendees who thanked her for IALC's grassroots activism, advocacy in the main stream and unconditional support for inclusion of Indian Americans in the Obama administration. Even though some appointees had just met her for the first time, Dr. Edwards advised: each one to always remember their family roots, where they came from and urged them to remain connected with the Indian American community-- their supporters and power base as a voting block.
