We grieve with our community during this incredibly difficult time and hold the family and loved ones of Daunte Wright in our hearts.

Our hearts go out to the Austin East Magnet High school community members who have been affected by the shooting.

India Association Of Minnesota
A non-profit organization that has straddled over four decades of community service since its inception in 1973, India Association of Minnesota (IAM) aims to build a strong and cohesive community of over 50,000-strong Asian Indians in the state of Minnesota. Through its three-prong mission of  Culture, Charity, and Connections, IAM seeks to build bridges of understanding between the Asian Indians and the society at large within the state and the country, connect Minnesota with India through events that promote cultural understanding and heritage, provide a charitable hand to causes here and in India, all the while functioning as the umbrella organization to the multitude of regional organizations in the state.
Here are the IAM By-Laws.

Our Vision

We are the point of contact in Minnesota for advancing the cultural, charitable, academic, political, social, and professional interests of the Asian Indian community. Partnering with other Indian organizations, we build a sense of cohesiveness within this community, represent it to the population at large and provide a voice to the State.
