Our communities are changing. We need progressive leaders ready to meet the challenge. Thuy (pronounced: Twee) Tran came to this country as a child and grew up in a low-income household. She was able to become a health care provider and successful small business owner because of investments from our community. As a mother of three, we can count on Thuy to fight for the things we all need.

Care For Those Experiencing Homelessness
Thuy sees the impact of this escalating crisis and will fight for more supportive housing, addiction treatment, and mental health services.

Health Care for All
As a provider, Thuy understands we must ensure health care access for all and will champion reproductive health services.

Confronting the Climate Crisis
Thuy will push to cut carbon emissions, and find solutions to protect our community from extreme weather and wildfire smoke.

Support for Families
Thuy will prioritize immediate support for all families by working to reduce the cost of child care and making housing affordable. She will fight to ensure care workers have the pay and support they need.


“As a mother, immigrant, service member, and business owner, Thuy is a true community leader. She is the voice we need in Salem.”
