Bio

Congressman Andre Carson has dedicated his career to public service as an advocate for Hoosier families. Since being elected to serve the 7th Congressional District in 2008, he has focused on growing the economy, strengthening national security and building a stronger middle class.

As the Ranking Member on the Emerging Threats Subcommittee on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Andre plays a vital role in ensuring the United States has the tools and resources needed to identify, track and defeat dangerous threats. This is a fitting role given Andre's past experience working with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. Andre also serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he recently worked to pass the first long-term highway bill in over decade, helping to get Hoosiers back to work by rebuilding our roads, bridges and rail lines.

Andre is also a rising member of House leadership. During the 115th Congress, Andre serves as a Senior Whip for the House Democratic Caucus, sits on the powerful Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, and is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus' Executive Leadership Team. These high profile positions have allowed him to fight for Indiana's 7th Congressional District at the highest levels of congressional leadership.

As one of two Muslims serving in Congress, Andre is a champion for vulnerable populations and is committed to ensuring everyone is protected equally under the law. Andre has long been involved in the fight to achieve gender fairness, religious freedom, and marriage equality.

Born and raised in Indianapolis, Andre grew up in a family that taught him the importance of hard work, caring for others and public service. Andre is a graduate of Arsenal Tech High School, and holds a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice Management from Concordia University-Wisconsin along with a Master's in Business Management from Indiana Wesleyan University.

Before taking office, Andre served on the Indianapolis City-County Council and worked full-time in law enforcement.

Andre is the proud parent of a ten-year-old old daughter, Salimah, and lives in Center Township.
