Freshman state Rep. Tram Nguyen, D-18th Essex, was recently presented with the Women's Empowerment Award by the women's group, Freedom North Shore.

The presentation took place at the Tewksbury Public Library.

In announcing the award, Bambi Snodgrass, president of Freedom North Shore, released the following statement:

 Freedom North Shore, a small group of committed North Shore citizens working to ensure the health and well-being of women, children and families in Massachusetts, presented Representative Tram Nguyen with the FNS Women’s Empowerment Award in recognition of her unwavering support of women’s rights. 

As we witness the federal government rollback of the rights of marginalized and vulnerable communities, including women, Freedom North Shore is working to ensure that the efforts of our local legislators do not go unnoticed. We salute and support our allies, and will continue to work with them to ensure that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts remains a leader in civil rights. 

Although Rep. Nguyen is a newcomer to Beacon Hill, she has accomplished much in her first 100 days. She filed 21 bills, advocating with her fellow legislators to get their co-sponsorships. Her bills are designed to “protect the most vulnerable, ensure fair employment practices, promote safety for victims of violence & human trafficking, advocate for energy efficiency, and address climate change.” 

Rep. Nguyen is serving on the Joint Committee on House, the Joint Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use & Recovery, the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government, and the House Committee on Personnel & Administration. Rep. Nguyen holds regular office hours in her district, making herself easily accessible to those needing constituent services. 

Rep. Nguyen embodies the characteristics Freedom North Shore wants to see in our elected officials: strong leadership, integrity, honesty, transparency, and dedication to fight for the rights of women, children and families in our Commonwealth.
