The Pasifika Village Council is PICA-WA’s commitment to advocate for the unique and diverse health and other wellness policy priority needs of Native Hawaiian (NH) and Pacific Islander (PI) communities across the state of Washington. We are committed to supporting policies that reduce barriers for NH/PIs to thrive while creating civic education opportunities to cast a wide net to help NH/PIs politicize their values and their voice.
Our Washington Pasifika Village Council works in partnership with the National NH/PI Policy Council to drive national priorities from the local and state level. We are made up of a broad coalition of NH/PI trusted community-based leaders and organizers who are concerned about the well-being of our NH/PI communities and are galvanized to advance the threefold mission of PICA-WA: advance NH/PI wellness, build community power and nurture cultural home together. Our Pasifika Village Councils are dedicated to promoting advocacy, collaboration, and leadership that improves the well-being of NH/PIs.
