Uyen Khuong, pronounced “Winn”, immigrated to the US in 1980 from Vietnam.  Her first foray into politics was writing a letter to and getting a response back from President Reagan while in grade school.  Uyen became an accidental activist for New Jersey during the 2016 Presidential Election when thousands of engaged New Jersey voters came together on Facebook to support Hillary Clinton. Uyen is the co-founder of ATNJ, a group of 18,000 members with chapters in every county. Uyen was recently honored in Washington D.C. as a We Are Emily Award recipient from Emily’s List for her work in grassroots organizing with ATNJ, the largest and fastest growing grassroots group in New Jersey.
