  PAID FOR BY DAS FOR CONGRESS  

FIRST INDIAN AMERICAN CONGRESSMAN FROM MAINE TO FLORIDA

My name is Beej Das and I am running for the United States Congress in the Massachusetts Third Congressional District. When elected, I will be the first Indian American member of Congress anywhere from Maine to Florida on the East Coast. For more about my story, click here.

THE CHALLENGE
  • There has never been an Indian American elected to federal office from Maine to Florida. That is fourteen states, 174 Congressional seats; eight of those fourteen are in the top ten of states with the highest percentage of Indian populations.

  • There are more than eleven thousand registered Indian American voters in the Massachusetts Third District, yet in the last two primaries, less than one hundred voted.

  • I challenge all Indian Americans to vote on September 4th to let our voices be heard.

Like many Indians of his generation, my father left India in 1964 with eight dollars in his pocket, came to America, and built his American dream. He is my hero. I will work tirelessly on issues important to our community:

  • fixing our broken healthcare system and ensuring our parents and elders can age gracefully at home,

  • fighting for increased and fair visa allocations for family, friends and promising talent from the Indian subcontinent,

  • ensuring that our Indian American children are treated fairly in college admissions,

  • demanding aggressive enforcement of hate crimes statutes for attacks against Indian Americans and minorities,

  • advocating for awareness of the vibrant Indian American cultural experience at the national level, and

  • simplifying the myriad of federal taxes and regulations affecting our businesses.
