Kranthi Chennupati

Chapter: Atlanta

Contestant for Position: President


My association with PFL was since Dr. JP’s Rejuvenate India trip to USA in 2010. As a strong supporter of Loksatta, my initial participation in PFL was to volunteer for Rejuvenate India events hosted in Atlanta. I continued as a member PFL and was part of Atlanta chapter’s Executive Board as VP for Memberships.

As a team we have successfully conducted few events to support Anna Hazare’s fast, protest attack on Dr. JP in association with 5th Pillar and India Against Corruption, Phone campaign for AP By-elections. Though we did great events, we were not successful in converting the attendants of Rejuvenate India event into active volunteers/members of PFL. Most common reply we get when approached most of them was that they are impressed with Dr.JP and support him but are not interested in politics.

I am contesting for the President of Atlanta Chapter. With the help of local and central Executive board I would like to promote Atlanta chapter to participate in all possible domains of PFL. My priorities for next term:

  1. Identify silent supporters and convert them into active participants/donors/volunteers with the help of memberships and events team.  
  2. As election year is approaching, brainstorm more ideas and strategies to promote CPP constituencies with funds, volunteers.
