'Sometimes We're Just Too Nice'

As the youngest — and first Muslim — woman elected to the Georgia Senate, Nabilah Islam says it's important to get aggressive in messaging to move the needle forward. "We have to tell people why they should FIRE Republicans and why they should HIRE Democrats. Sometimes we’re just too nice!” says the outspoken first-term senator in an interview. “I’m very hard-hitting and in-your-face. The public has to know how we are different from the Republicans.”

Elected Lawmakers of South Asian Origin

Since 1991, when Kumar Barve became the first Indian-American elected to a state legislature, the political participation of Americans of South Asian origin has only grown across the local, state and federal arenas. In 2023, there are at least 41 elected Democratic lawmakers of South Asian origin in state legislatures and five in Congress.

They See Blue's mission is to get Democratic lawmakers elected, not necessarily those of South Asian origin. But we do celebrate that Democrats of South Asian origin are increasingly running for office — and winning — to represent our values, concerns and goals by participating in the political process. We've put together a list of those elected lawmakers serving this year with a link to their contact information. We will update this list as we get new information.
