Khanh Pham, an organizer with OPAL Environmental Justice, has already proved her effectiveness, helping lead the campaign that established a new clean-energy fund in Portland. But she’s also demonstrated the political courage to stand for principles over party. She … comes armed with detailed information to back up her stances. Pham is the stronger choice.

The Oregonian, May 3, 2020

She’s demonstrated an ability to do big things fast. The daughter of Vietnamese refugees, Pham…was a key player in passing a $50 million-a-year tax on large companies to fund clean-energy jobs in low-income neighborhoods. Pham has built a reputation as a strong organizer and a clear voice for the unheard, including Portland’s rapidly growing Asian population, which has been excluded from important conversations.

Willamette Week, April 28, 2020

Pham’s resume reads like a list of issues that are important for Portlanders, and particularly important for residents along Southeast 82nd Avenue in District 46. A Jade District resident, Pham worked on housing, health, and climate justice initiatives for the Asian Pacific Network of Oregon (APANO). In 2016, she turned her attention to passing the Portland Clean Energy Initiative…If elected, Pham hopes to make the Oregon Green New Deal—a plan that blends aggressive environmental policy with clean energy job training and a focus on empowering communities most impacted by climate change—one of her signature issues.

Portland Mercury, April 28, 2020

Pham represents one of the new faces of Oregon at a time when fresh perspectives are needed. And, who better to bring them than a first-generation mom raising a bi-cultural daughter at a time when a pandemic and climate change are re-shaping the state and the world?

As we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am proud to run for office using my given name. If elected, I will be the first API woman to represent this diverse district, where so many of my neighbors are Asian Pacific Islander, and where we have never had a Representative from an API community. I will continue to fight for a Green New Deal, and a recovery that reaches every community. Please watch and share my new video, “What is an American Name?”
