LISA FRACK has two children, born in Oregon in 2003 and 2006. She’s been fired up about the lack of family-friendly public policies in the U.S since learning she had no paid family leave as a pregnant federal employee. Since simply being fired up doesn’t equal change, she decided to do something about it because, well, we mothers are ready for some serious policy change. She is also a founding board member of The Mother PAC’s sister organization, Family Forward Action. She has a Masters in Public Policy from Duke University.

THUY TRAN was born in Viet Nam, and immigrated to the United States as refugee with her parents when she was only nine years old. Her path led her to Oregon after being accepted to the optometry program at Pacific University. She earned her degree, and 20 years ago opened Rose City Vision Care and now has 2 clinic locations providing high quality compassionate eye care to patients in both NE and SE Portland. Thuy was the chair of the Asian American Pacific Islanders Caucus of the Democratic Party of Oregon and a Precinct Committee Person for House District 47. She was a candidate for State Representative for House District 47 in the 2012 Primary. She was elected to the Parkrose School District  Board in 2013. Currently, she is a board member of Main Street Alliance of Oregon and Metropolitan Public Defenders, striving to build a thriving progressive business community and lending her support in the fight against injustices. As a small business owner for twenty years, a Lt. Col of the Air National Guard, an Optometric Physician, and mother of three children, she will bring her high level of commitment and success to our PAC.
