My statement on the reports in the last several weeks that have brought to light instances of inhumane treatment of immigrants and asylum seekers in our country.
“Kathy Tran arrived as a refugee from Vietnam in 1980 as a child. Now she’s a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. On World Refugee Day, Ali chats with Kathy about her desperate flight from war, her run for high office, and how she’s living proof of the reality of the American Dream.”
Today is the 43rd anniversary of Black April, a day of painful remembrance for many in the Vietnamese community. You can read my full statement here.
“After President Donald Trump’s election ushered in an anti-refugee administration, Tran decided to enter politics. In November, she was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, becoming the first Vietnamese American – and one of the first Asian American women – in the state’s legislature.”
“The University’s celebration of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month began with celebrations of the cultures, traditions and histories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States Wednesday with an opening ceremony featuring Virginia Del. Kathy Tran (D-Springfield).”
Tran, a mother of four, proudly serves as the President of the West Springfield Elementary PTA, where she works with other volunteers to support the school community. The delegate is inspired by her own parents, who brought her family to the U.S. from Vietnam as refugees. Their hard work and resilience allowed them to fulfill their “American dream.”
“People have come from across the country to say enough is enough, and we need action on gun safety,” Del. Tran said. “As Virginian legislators we have the responsibility to listen to our constituents and protect our communities. Too many lives have been lost, and we have to act now.”
