Nima Kulkarni

Democrat State House (KY-40) - 2018

Nima Kulkarni is an immigration attorney, advocate, and founder of the New Americans Initiative, a nonprofit dedicated to educating and informing the local community about immigration related issues. When Nima was six, her family immigrated from India to Louisville to ensure her brother could get the special education that was not available in India. In May, Nima won the Democratic nomination — beating the incumbent and two other primary challengers — and is positioned to be the first Indian American to run, and win, state office in the history of Kentucky.
