Chloe Nguyen, of Las Vegas, Nevada, is a senior at Duke University where she studies Public Policy with a minor in Psychology. Chloe is the founder of Duke Justice Project, a club addressing mass incarceration and improving re-entry in North Carolina. The group’s projects include weekly GED tutoring classes, assisting lawyers with expungement petitions, and executing a supply drive for a transitional home. Committed to decreasing political polarization on campus, and connecting ideologically diverse students across campus, in partnership with Braver Angels, she has organized structured debates on difficult topics ranging from social media censorship to reparations.  At WRAL TV, she is a Poynter-Google News Initiative Misinformation Student Fellow, investigating barriers to news access for Spanish speaking communities and surveying those communities to determine perception of and trust in fact-checking.  As a reporter for 9th Street Journal, Chloe broke a story on a blackout at an affordable housing complex for seniors and disabled people which resulted in internal policy change to increase safety for seniors and disabled persons during blackouts. She aspires to continue learning how the online micro-targeting of disinformation and political advertisements into diverse communities amplifies offline polarization and violence and plans for a legal career in technology regulation. Chloe will study Digital Policy and University College Dublin.
