The Federation of Indian Associations (FIA)
The Federation of Indian Associations (FIA) of the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut is one of the largest esteemed umbrella organizations in the Indian community. It represents over 500,000 strong and vibrant Asian-Indians who provide significant grass root support.
Established in the year 1970, the FIA has blossomed into a commendable organization that has become an effective mouthpiece and mobilizer for the community.
FIA represents various issues that concern a growing Asian-Indian community at the local, state, and national levels.
Over the years, it has also tried to project a truthful and real image of India to the mainstream community and also further the interests of Indians residing in the United States.
It is in this spirit that, since 1981, the annual India Day Parade is held in New York City to present our progress and unity to the many diversified ethnic communities in this area.
