The PI Covid 19 WA Taskforce was stood up by PICA-WA in April to address the devastating impact of Covid 19 on Pasifika communities. Our PI Covid 19 Pierce Team has been working around the clock the harms in Pierce County from community engagement, standing up PI testings, supplying PPE supplies, and helping families access economic resources. Our partners and allies in Pierce County include: Tacoma Pierce County Health District.
