Khmer Girls in Action will ‘expose the real horrors’ in Long Beach at annual voter education event

Youth leadership organization Khmer Girls in Action will hold its fifth annual Halloween event Friday, this time focusing the voter education event on two initiatives on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The Hotel of Horrors will focus on Prop. 10, a statewide proposition that could potentially make rent control more widespread if passed. Organizers will also discuss the local Measure WW, which requires panic buttons for housekeepers and limits the number of rooms a housekeeper can clean. It will also serve as a voter mobilization event.

Organizers said the KGA’s office will be turned into a haunted maze meant to embody what the ballot proposition and measure seek to change.

“From sexual assault, unsafe workloads at large hotel industry workplaces to feeling pressure of moving out of homes because of the lack of control cities have over deciding on how to implement rent control, youth leaders are excited to expose the real horrors haunting our community,” the organization said in a release.

The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 and is open to the public. It will include an interactive photo booth, music, raffle prizes and resources for the election. RSVP here.

Khmer Girls in Action is located at 1355 Redondo Ave., Suite 9.
