Before the O.C. Women’s March filled the streets of downtown Santa Ana in 2019, Garden Grove City Councilwoman Kim Nguyen held a colorful sign at its forefront.

The protest placard listed off all she embodied in adding a dash of defiance to the day.

“Young, Mexican, Vietnamese, female, elected — their worst nightmare!”
