PIERCE COUNTY CHAPTER

REGION & CHAPTER SNAPSHOT

Our Pierce County NHPI community is the second largest NHPI community in the State of Washington. Historically, the Samoan, CHamoru & Native Hawaiian community have settled this region due to proximity to the local military base, Fort Lewis. NHPI communities is a vibrant part of the Pierce County cultural fabric. Pierce County has become a hub for many Pasifika communities who were displaced due to gentrification in search of more accessible housing. Our PICA-WA – Pierce County Chapter is primarily focused on co-designing interventions in partnership with the Tacoma Pierce County Health District to mitigate inequities caused by long-standing systemic racism along with standing up our political advocacy work to activate the leadership of our families. 

SYSTEMS PARTNERS

We currently are working collaboratively with Tacoma Pierce County Health District to alleviate racial disparities that continue to disenfranchise NHPI communities in Pierce not just in health disparities but in other socio-economic factors. We are currently partner with faith-based communities to offer our service provisions while activation our communities members about the importance of civic engagement in advancing our health and sense of wealth socially.
