We hosted a conversation with Dr. Michael Oppenheimer (photo right) and Dr. Sivan Kartha (photo left), two climate change experts, co-sponsored by the Central Jersey chapter of the Sierra Club. Our Pennsylvania chapter co-sponsored a panel discussion with local leaders and organizers, entitled "No Warming, No Waste, No Wars!" (photo of panelists below). They had a combined total of over 250 participants, tuning in from a variety of streaming platforms.

Candidate Briefings and Questionnaire Responses:

As part of our Peace Voter campaign, CFPA organizes a delegation of its leaders and issue experts to educate candidates on gun violence prevention; Diplomacy, Not War with Iran and North Korea; nuclear "modernization;" the Nuclear Ban Treaty; a Peace Economy; No Wars, No Warming; drone warfare; and paper ballot voting

On March 9, 2020, CFPA's delegation briefed Congressional candidate Brigid Harrison (D) of District 2 (currently held by Rep. Jeff Van Drew). See pictures below. 

A Briefing by the same team of experts and organizational leaders was held via conference call on March 16 with Amy Kennedy, the other top candidate (both women!) in the District 2 Democratic Primary race for who will face incumbent (recently switched to Republican) Rep. Jeff Van Drew in the November Election.

These two candidates also responded to our Peace Voter Candidate Questionnaire (sent to all candidates). Click here to see Brigid Harrison's response, and click here to see Amy Kennedy's response. 

For District 4 (currently held by Rep. Chris Smith), CFPA briefed candidate Christine Conforti (D) via Zoom (video-conference). Click here to view a recording of the briefing!
