YOU have the power to change the narrative about Hinduism.

Join the HAF Dharma Advocates Training Program!

Spreading Dharma and making a difference, one community member at a time.

The purpose of the Hindu American Foundation Dharma Advocates Training Program is to train Hindu Americans to become better, more effective, and influential advocates for the Hindu American cause.

Hindus have been gaining prominence in America, but generally the community as a whole has not reached the level of advocacy effectiveness and influence as other, mostly smaller, minority groups like Armenian Americans, Cuban Americans, which comprise < 1% of the U.S. population, and Jewish Americans who comprise approximately 2% of the U.S. population.

Comparatively, Hindu Americans comprise approximately 1% of the population, but have not had the same level of advocacy success of the aforementioned groups.

In this interactive advocacy training webinar, participants will learn how they can make their voices heard on a wide variety of local, state, and federal issues of importance.
