About André

Congressman André 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 a senior Member of the House Intelligence Committee, André led the first open hearing on Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon in 50 years. He continues to serve on House Intel as well as the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee — where he fights for stronger transit, Amtrak funding, and investments in our roads — as well as the newly-formed Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party.

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

Born in Indianapolis, André grew up in a family that taught him the importance of hard work, caring for others and public service. André 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, André served on the Indianapolis City-County Council and worked full-time in law enforcement. André is the proud parent of a teenaged daughter, Salimah, and lives in Center Township.
