State Rep. Tram Nguyen is one of six nominees for the national EMILY'S List Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award.
"It's an incredible honor to be included as a finalist with these accomplished women," said Rep. Nguyen. "As the first Vietnamese American woman elected into office in Massachusetts, I appreciate the barriers that my fellow nominees have broken. Like Congresswoman Giffords, I am committed to fighting for working families, for women and children, and for survivors of domestic violence and violent crimes. I'm grateful to EMILY's List for helping me further that goal."
