Mission Statement

Khmer Girls in Action works with young Khmer (Cambodian) women in Long Beach to organize for positive social change and a healthy and powerful Khmer community in Long Beach. KGA empowers young Khmer women to enact systemic change through political education, feminist consciousness raising, leadership development, community-based research, grass-roots organizing, and cultural programming.

Description

Khmer Training Program (KT): KT works with high school age Khmer young women between the ages of 14-18 to build their capacity to analyze how their physical, emotional, and mental well-being is influenced by political, social, cultural, and economic factors. Currently, KGA members are participating in the Southeast Asian Summer Film Institute in partnership with Third World Majority to develop a series of short films/documentaries on issues impacting Southeast Asian young women in Long Beach. This digital storytelling series is KGAâ  s first effort to explore cultural expression through the medium of film.
