Ajay Bhutoria selected to Hillary's AAPI National Leadership Council Named among 100 most influential Asian American community leaders

New York: Hillary for America announced the launch of its Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Hillary Leadership Council– a group of over 150 elected officials, community, and grassroots leaders who will help build a grassroots-driven volunteer team that will help Hillary Clinton engage, energize and organize support in the AAPI community ahead of the caucuses and primaries.

These officials are taking on leadership roles on the heels of the launch of AAPI for Hillary in San Gabriel, California, where Clinton was surrounded by leaders from the community and discussed what’s at stake for the AAPI community in this election.

The latest to join the powerful list of influential NRIs is Ajay Jain Bhutoria from Fremont California.

Bhutoria’s involvement as  AAPI National Leadership Council for Hillary Clinton's election campaign for US Presidency is seen as another example of top Indian immigrants moving into mainstream US politics and their contributions to American social and political life in general.  

Bhutoria joins other members which include Congressman, Senators and elected officials and community leaders from Japanese, Chinese, Pakistani, Philippines, and Vietnamese among others.

Bhutoria has been the co-host for several events connecting Indian Americans in San Francisco Bay Area. These events have been attended by Hillary Clinton and helped raise more than $100,000 for the Primary Campaign funds.

Bhutoria has been awarded several national and international awards with most recent awards being: California State Assembly Community Hero 2015; South Asian Inspirational Achiever Award 2015; Time of India NRI Inspirational Achiever Hero Award 2015; SAF Foundation Inspirational Community Hero Award 2015 and more.

Bhutoria has served and led various organizations including Rajasthan Association of North America, GOPIO Silicon Valley and Global Organization for Community Services.
