Actor Omi Vaidya At HAF Spring Gala

Press Release

Growing up Hindu in America is an event for the whole family


7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. EST

Registration is required

Growing up Hindu in America can be challenging. From idol worshipper to dot head to Apu, we’ve heard it all. And just when we’ve made it through the ‘caste, cow, and karma’ stereotypes in high school world history, we’re faced with university professors presenting warped interpretations of Hindu scripture and epics in class and on social media under the guise of ‘academic freedom’.


But through it all, we’ve been inspired by ancient Hindu teachings and have gone on to break barriers in all walks of American life, not in spite of our Hindu traditions, but because of them. We’re going to talk about it all... 


Bring your whole family. Your kids will get it. If you grew up here, you’ll relate to it. And if you didn’t, you’ll gain new perspectives on the challenges Hindu American students face and overcome.
