Threads 2019: Celebrating the Hindu-American Saga

Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) is organizing “Threads 2019: Share, Appreciate and Engage to Shape a Collective Future” a unique conference to explore and chronicle the contributions of Hindus to America and pay tribute to America and its warm embrace of Hindus. The conference will be held from November 1-3, 2019, in Boston, MA.

Threads 2019 will bring together a community that is maturing and making its mark every day in America. Speakers who are leaders, scholars and leading lights in various aspects of life – philanthropy, science, arts, technology, media, business, medicine and academia – will narrate their story so each thread can be picked up and woven into a fabric that tells the larger tale of the impact of Hindus on American society.

Hindus immigrated to the United States of America from all corners of the world and are deeply interwoven in the fabric of America today. They have enriched the American tapestry with diverse and far ranging contributions.

Threads aims to chronicle the story of their assimilation and contributions. Their inspiring story is in fact a tribute to America, which has embraced them with open arms as they fulfill their aspirations of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness in this wonderful land of opportunities.

Threads brings together Hindu-American thinkers, artists, educators, writers, public policy makers, scientists, medical professionals, entrepreneurs and business leaders on one platform – for a singular purpose: to share their stories, to celebrate their accomplishments and engage with each other, and share ideas for a brighter and better America of tomorrow.

The conference will feature inspiring personalities from an array of fields as keynote speakers, panelists and poster presenters, and will cover a broad range of topics.
