Indo-American Community Federation was founded by Jeevan Zutshi in 1993 as he saw a need for Indo-Americans to be part of mainstream America. A young community compared to other communities in the U.S. has been more interested in issues facing India but there was lesser interest in the Homeless in our backyard, domestic violence, gang related youth issues and local government. IACF has made a difference by all standards. Indian community is now involved in their backyards as well even though a lot more is needed. The Annual Unity Dinner by Indo American Community Federation has become a signature event to bring entire diversity together.
