You’ve seen them, you’ve learned, you’ve connected - when Pierce County Council Chair Doug Richardson and Councilmember Rick Talbert launched the Pierce County Trivia video series as a new and interesting way to communicate with their constituents, the response was more than they could have ever hoped for! As Pierce County Trivia comes to a close they look back at what they discovered, highlighting the connections and people that made this video series something that every community can appreciate and why #PierceCo is such a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. View the entire series at www.piercecountywa.org/trivia.

Like the rest of America, baby boomers in the LGBTQ community are facing retirement. While confronted with the same challenges that everyone faces as they age, because of discrimination and violence faced in the earlier part of their life, LGBTQ adults may often be reluctant to use the resources available.
"LGBTQ Aging in Pierce County” is a free town hall forum designed to help shape a more inclusive and age-friendly community. Learn more about the event on March 17 here: http://www.co.pierce.wa.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=3690
