We are a group of volunteers from across the country. KNKB hopes to bring credible news and discussion to the Vietnamese community. Our goal is to start a discussion among family members that lead to a productive conversation about our political climate.

Our Team consists of young professional Vietnamese Americans who all came together to achieve a common goal: To remove biases in our news media.

Unfortunately, and those within the Vietnamese community can perhaps relate, our parents and relatives do not have access to reliable news sources due to the burden of language barriers. They are constantly subjected to distorted or outright fake news from questionable sources, to radio hosts and Youtubers whose goal is not to inform, but to be pundits. Therefore, this news aggregator is my solution to this unique problem in our community.
As a subset of “The Interpreter”, KNKB shares similar goals:
1) Bridge the information gap caused by the language barrier by translating relevant news, editorial, op-ed, and opinion articles from a reputable international news agency, into Vietnamese
2) provide young people with Vietnamese-language materials to help them start difficult conversations regarding social justice, police brutality, solidarity, and the history of racism in America.
