PACIFIC COUNTY VOICES UNITING- Pacific County Voices Uniting is a 100% BIPOC-led organization located along the edges of Willapa Bay in Southwest Washington that aims to shift, balance, and develop a culture of healthy civic engagement. In a county with large disparities, we are uniting cross-cultural and multi-generational demographics to participate in collaborative social movements that increase civic engagement through education, create more reflective representation and build political power. By lifting and supporting BIPOC leadership, we strive to promote systems and policies that create equitable access to resources for those often forgotten or silenced in our communities. More specifically, we seek racial, political, social, and economic justice for those most marginalized in our communities: Black, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander peoples of color, the LGBTQIA2S+ community, and people living with disabilities.

PACIFIC COUNTY IMMIGRANT SUPPORT- Pacific County Immigrant Support provides assistance and advocates for immigrants in Southwest Washington. We build resiliency through development of a grassroots group that effectively reaches the immigrant community with culturally-specific services. We deepen our reach with information and training, community outreach to homes and businesses, and advocating for systemic change. This includes engaging immigrants as community educators and navigators (Promotores), elevating immigrant voices within PCIS leadership, and conducting workshops on citizenship and English language education. We’re a group of people just like you. We rely on volunteers to accomplish our work with family support and advocacy, rapid response and deportation defense, Spanish translation, fundraising, and media communications.
