PACA is focusing our Survival Program coronavirus crisis response on the Parkland section of Washington, DC.

Utilizing our principles of organizing for POWER, we are determining the capacity of our community and developing a program that allows us to operate in our full capacity. 

The core of the survival program includes:

  • helping locate and provide essential needs, in this case disinfectant (rubbing alcohol or commercial disinfectant) and supplies to reduce the potential for contracting the coronavirus;
  • organize and facilitate mutual aid where neighbors support each other instead of competing with each other for supplies;
  • defend the community against government attacks;
  • grow political unity;
  • build power;


The Parkland Crisis Response includes delivery of materials, regular meetings (building meetings or online meetings) an email listserv and a text message group.
