Welcome to the Pacifica COVID-19 Task Force website. The task force was created by the democratically-elected National Board of the Pacifica Foundation to develop a national daily one-hour show focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences and repercussions, and the peoples’ movements dealing with these new realities. We are committed to presenting uncensored dialogue and discussion, coverage of labor, community and grassroots struggles to challenge the disaster-capitalism approach and the profiteering and corruption taking place as the medical and economic crisis, and poor and working people pay the price.

The website will feature blog posts and links to articles and other resources of benefit to the public at large, as well as resources useful to content producers for Pacifica radio and our stations and affiliates, and links to existing Pacifica radio network resources and content.
