The Coalition for Peace Action co-sponsored a rally and vigil against anti-Asian hate crimes, which was held in Princeton on March 27, 2021. We stood in solidarity with Asian communities that have been impacted by an increase of bigotry and violence, including the recent shooting deaths of eight people in Atlanta, six of whom were Asian American women.

An estimated 3,000 were in attendance. Rev. Bob Moore, our Executive Director, spoke at the beginning of the rally.
