“I don’t remember how long I’ve known Bee because before I knew her, everywhere I showed up, she was already there. She was there working on issues and finding solutions. She is a true public servant. And her story, her family’s story is a powerful one. Bee is the real deal.”
— Senator Nan Orrock, District 36

“I would be thrilled to have Bee join me as another strong, progressive leader at the capitol. Bee is a true public servant who has dedicated the last decade her life fighting for women, refugees, immigrants, sexual assault survivors, and others whose voices so often go unheard by leaders. I have seen how effective and inspiring Bee is as a community advocate and can only imagine the change she can bring about as a representative of House District 89 and of our state.”
— Rep. Park Cannon, District 58

“The Georgia AFL-CIO is proud to endorse Bee Nguyen for Georgia House District 89. Bee has served her community for the last decade fighting for women, girls, and the under-served. We are supporting her because we know that she will take that passion and spirit to the Gold Dome and stand with the working families of District 89.”
— Charlie Fleming, President of the Georgia AFL-CIO

“To meet Bee Nguyen is to immediately sense the passion she brings to the political process and making the world a better place for others. Bee has a strong understanding of Georgia’s highly complicated budget process and the thick documents associated with it. When elected, she will be a strong advocate for sensible tax and economic policies. Bee’s work on behalf of at-risk teenage girls is inspirational and the energy she has devoted to her grassroots campaign proves she will be an effective state representative.”
— Anna Beck, Board Chair of Georgia's WIN List

“Bee’s long dedication to advocacy on behalf of women and families make her an outstanding candidate for HD 89. The Georgia State House will be stronger and more effective with her voice.”
— Staci Fox, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast
