sick, to a historic march into the halls of Congress,
Ami Bera is a trailblazer who personifies what is
great about the American spirit.
By putting himself through school to improve the
quality of health care, and fighting to diversify
opportunities for the middle class, Ami’s advocacy
on behalf of others is rooted in a deeply held ethos
of service to others, that runs deep within the of
hearts Indian Americans and Hindu Americans
throughout our country.
As a close ally and friend, I’m proud of the road
Ami has paved, but I’m even more proud that our
marches of progress are rooted in a simple belief
that we can be true champions of change when we
unite people together through our shared motiva-
tion of serving others.

As a fellow Californian, I am especially proud to call Representative Ami Bera a dear friend and colleague.
In just the few months he has served in Washington, Ami has already proven himself
to be a true leader and advocate for the people of his district, and for the Asian American
and Pacific Islander community.
As chair emeritus of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus in Congress, I
have long fought for policies that promote the well-being of the entire AAPI community.
I have also campaigned across the country for many candidates for public office, seeking to broaden perspectives in Congress to include
members from all walks of life and to better reflect
the diversity of the American experience.
Ami is one of the very best, and I was thrilled with
As the son of immigrants, Ami has the tenacity to
fight for our values while understanding the
strengths new Americans and citizens bring each day
to our shores.
I first met Ami during his 2010 campaign for
Congress, and was immediately impressed with his
determination and fortitude in presenting a positive,
forward-thinking vision for his constituents.
A physician by trade, Ami has the patience and
heart to humanely address the most challenging
issues of our time — including immigration reform
and access to education and health care, three topics
close to the hearts of the AAPI community.
As a member of the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, Ami is already taking a strong stand and
working to strengthen relations between the US and
India, and to be a leading voice on South Asia overall.
I am proud to work alongside Ami as we promote
the diversity that will strengthen our economy and,
ultimately, better our nation. ;
