It’s been over three years since we’ve met, so we’re looking forward to reconnecting in person at our Annual Chapter Gala. This year’s theme is Masquerade Ball. In addition to dancing and dining, we’ll fill you in on all that has been happening here in our own backyard in California. From caste based discrimination laws to the rise of hate crimes to the decriminalization of the swastika to professors disguising anti-Hindu rhetoric as academic freedom, we’ll discuss how it impacts you and the broader community. Find out what HAF has been doing to protect your rights and what we can do together to empower Hindu Americans for years to come.

Come dressed in your best, get ready to dance to your favorite bollywood classics, and catch up with new and old friends. This will be a fun night for the whole family – child care and pizza are available for 12 and under.

Get your tickets today because we can’t wait to catch up with you!

  • General Admission: $200
  • Table of 8: $1,500
  • Child (12 and under): $50
