Khmer Girls in Action is a community-based organization whose mission is to build a progressive and sustainable Long Beach community that works for gender, racial and economic justice led by Southeast Asian young women. We envision a safe, healthy and just world where all people are free from oppression and are able to determine their lives and communities.
For over 20 years, KGA has developed socially conscious and politically active youth. Through our programs and campaigns, we have increased their capacity to be leaders and organizers in our community who dismantle systemic oppression and advance change.
KGA first participated in Give in May in 2020. Since then key accomplishments include:
In this year of the metal ox, we will provide oversight on the implementation of the Long Beach Youth Fund and Youth Strategic Plan. This implementation phase is rooted in strategies for civic engagement, participatory budgeting, narrative change, and youth leadership development.
We strive to model co-governance in our city where youth and community residents determine policies, and budget priorities that influence power and ensure an equitable COVID-19 recovery for communities most impacted by systemic oppression.
Contributions from the Give in May campaign will support KGA’s work in building the leadership of Southeast Asian women and youth of color in Long Beach today and for the upcoming generations.
