On Sunday, April 30, Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) volunteer leaders held a table at Communiversity. At the table, volunteers conducted our penny poll. As people came to the CFPA table at Communiversity, they were invited to express their opinion on how they would like their federal tax dollars to be spent.

Each of the 372 participants were given ten pennies and asked to distribute them between five tubes representing categories of federal spending: education, environment, health care, housing, and military. The results are below.

Participants were then handed a fact sheet showing that 54% of the “Discretionary Budget” for FY2016 was for military spending. Discretionary spending is what Congress can allocate for what it chooses each year, as distinct from entitlements. Discretionary Budget Funding for Education was just 6%, Health Care 5%; Environment 4%, and Housing 6%.

On Saturday, April 29, the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) co-led a bus to the People's Climate March in Washington, D.C. Over 200,000 people marched to support clean energy policy and climate justice. CFPA was one of several groups to participate in the "Peace Hub" of the March, a section comprised of various peace organizations. The goals of the March intersected with those of CFPA's No Wars No Warming campaign.

On the same date, PA Director Ed Aguilar and several members of CFPA's Saint Joseph's University Student Chapter attended a "sister march" in Philadelphia.
