CFPA members and supporters gathered for a 3-part holiday event last Thursday, 12/12/19. There was an outdoor vigil for Diplomacy, Not War with North Korea, then a potluck meal, followed by a program of speakers, and music by David Brahinsky & Friends. 

The speakers recounted highlights of CFPA's work in the past 40 years.
