Vietnamese newspaper recognized at APALC citizenship workshop

During an APALC naturalization workshop in Orange County on Monday, May 21, representatives from the office of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and State Senator Lou Correa presented certificates of appreciation to Hung Nguyen, the Manager of Development at Nguoi Viet Daily News – the first and largest daily newspaper published in Vietnamese in the United States.

Senator Lou Correa’s representative Tammy Tran said, “We want to thank the Nguoi Viet newspaper on behalf of the office of Lou Correa for all their work with the community not only as a news agency but also as a community veteran.”

Nguoi Viet has been a long-time supporter of APALC.  This month, the newspaper has provided space for APALC’s free citizenship clinics, which are usually held in Los Angeles.

"We would also like to express our heart-felt thanks to Nguoi Viet's continuing support and sponsorship of our many other legal clinics and community-focused events,’’ said APALC Staff Attorney Tammy Peng. “We would not have served that many Vietnamese-Americans if we did not have access to the community hall or the publicity that Nguoi Viet helps to generate."
