Lori Trahan Named Congressional Cambodia Caucus Co-Chairman

February 3, 2023

U.S. Representative Lori Trahan (D-Westford) was recently named the co-chairman of the Congressional Cambodia Caucus.

Trahan represents the state’s Third District. Her district includes Lowell, Massachusetts, which is home to about 13,000 Cambodian Americans, according a 2018 scholarly article by Purdue University professor Virak Chan.

“Growing up in Lowell, I’ve seen firsthand just how much Cambodian families have contributed to our city and our region. Many escaped unimaginable violence in their home country and settled here in search of a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Lowell is a better place because of their cultural, educational, electoral, and economic successes,” Trahan said in a written statement. “As their representative, I have always made it a top priority to ensure their voices are heard in the halls of Congress, and I’m honored to take on this new role as Co-Chair of the Congressional Cambodia Caucus to continue those efforts.”

The other co-chairman of the caucus is U.S. Representative Young Kim (R-California)
