On Saturday, July 17, the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) rode the Peace Train to the Women's March to Ban the Bomb in New York City. CFPA held a rally at Trenton Transit Center before boarding the train. Approximately 25 CFPA members travelled on the train to the 200 person March from Bryant Park to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, near the United Nations. The Women's March to Ban the Bomb was held in conjunction with the UN negotiations for a legally binding treaty to ban nuclear weapons.

rsz pennypollcommuniversity

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.

Education

Health Care

Environment

Military

Housing

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%.

Our Mission
