Theresa Tran: Getting Out the Asian-American Vote

Theresa Tran understands the fears of the immigrant voter.  Her parents are Vietnamese refugees, and she circulates in the Asian Pacific Islander community, listening to stories.  Feelings of uncertainty, the awkwardness of not fitting in, and even tales of intimidation.  APIA Vote - Michigan is looking to change that.  By getting the Asian Pacific Island American community to register and to understand the voting process.  It is critical that all voices be heard, according to Tran, and she is working hard to ensure just that.  Your country, your right, your vote!
