Katie Nguyen Kalvoda hosts both Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang in October 2019 and his wife, Evelyn Yang, in February 2020 in separate gatherings with hundreds of supporters. Among those in attendance were first time politically engaged voters who were excited by Andrew Yang's candidacy and what it means for the Asian American community. In his remarks at the private fundraiser, Andrew Yang says "During the campaign, I've been fortunate enough to meet Asian Americans everyplace from Iowa to Los Angeles to New Hampshire. I feel like I've seen people in every walk of life, from the shopkeeper to the media executive. It's been phenomenal. I've learned that we have an incredible range of experiences but we all want better for our families. I’ve also seen an increased sense of Asian American pride across many different communities, which was tremendous."
