Tram is one of 46 women elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives on November 6, 2018.
We asked Tram why we need more women leaders. Her response: “When I initially considered a run for State Representative, I was told that it was not my time and to set my expectations lower. But I knew that I had a valuable perspective as a woman of color, a political refugee, and a legal aid attorney to contribute to the discussions at the State House, and that I could use my voice to be a strong advocate for my district. I am proud to belong to an incoming group of State Representatives that is fifty percent women and look forward to helping more women and women of color get elected to public office in the years to come.”
