The Progressive Shift of Vietnamese-American Voters

Is 2020 a year of a tidal shift in loyalties for a key voting block? Vietnamese Americans have long voted for Republican candidates, but this year, many have been shifting their vote toward Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

What is causing the shift? Is it immigration policies that have targeted Vietnamese communities? The president's leadership style? Pandemic mismanagement?

Join us for a discussion with three experts and leaders in the Vietnamese-American community.
