WHO WE ARE:
VietFactCheck is a project by PIVOT—the Progressive Vietnamese American Organization. We are a network of volunteers across the United States who care about the truth.
To empower Vietnamese Americans with fact-checked, source-verified analysis and rebuttals in English and Vietnamese to combat the onslaught of misinformation that is circulating widely in our Vietnamese American communities during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election.
