New Orleans Group Worked to Engage Young Voters in Gubernatorial Election - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America re VAYLA
"As a nonpartisan organization...our job is not to recommend who to vote for but to make sure that our community understands the issues at stake and why their votes count," Minh Thanh Nguyen, executive director of VAYLA New Orleans, told NBC News. "Even with the various barriers that the governor and state legislature have enacted, like the lack of language access and moving of polling locations without proper notice, we have seen preliminary numbers to indicate that we are seeing more than above projected turnout from the [Asian American and Pacific Islander] community."
