The weekend of 2/20 and 2/21 was quite a productive one for CFPA and our partners! For the two events described below, we had more than 400 participate, including live attendees and those who viewed the recording afterwards. 

On Saturday, 2/20, we co-sponsored Sacred Heart of Camden's Peace Community Annual Gathering. Peace activists Kathy Kelly, Sarah Ball, and Jim Forest were featured (with Jim's remarks being read by Nancy Forest). 

On Sunday, 2/21, we held a panel discussion about the hazardous proposed LNG (liquefied natural gas) export terminal to be built in Gibbstown, NJ along the Delaware River.

CFPA members showed up for a "World Says No to War on Yemen" demonstration in Newark on Jan. 25, 2021. 

Two of our committed members, Richard Moody and Ram Chelluri, spoke at the rally against the American lead role in the Yemen War and the killing of innocent children. See pictures below.

The Rev. Dr. Charles Boyer was the preacher for our Annual MLK Multifaith Service, co-sponsored by the Coalition for Peace Action and the Princeton Clergy Association. We had over 300 attendees on Zoom that night, plus about 225 subsequent views of the YouTube recording, for a total of over 500!!

The service included messages and music from a variety of faith traditions; please view the recording below to enjoy the experience of fellowship and reflect on the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

The freewill offering during the service is being split 50/50 between the United Negro College Fund and the Coalition for Peace Action. If you were not able to give during the service and would like to give now, click here to give. 

On December 16, 2020, CFPA members and supporters gathered on Zoom for our annual Holiday Gathering. We heard from Seth Shelden, the UN Liaison for the Nobel Prize winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), who was a key leader in reaching the 50 ratifications needed for the UN's Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to enter into force. We also heard wonderful music from Sharleen Leahey, including a new song she wrote especially for the occasion! See full video below. 

We also recommend this documentary film about the treaty!
