CFPA has reserved two buses to head from Princeton to D.C. on March 24th for the March for Our Lives, a demonstration created by students in response to the Parkland, Florida shooting. The March demands immediate legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues in our country, especially tragic mass school shootings.
We will be meeting at the Princeton municipal building, 400 Witherspoon Street. We will be departing at 7:30 A.M, and leaving D.C. at 5 PM. Once you register, we will be sending e-mail reminders and updates on the details.
The March itself will take place on Saturday, March 24 on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. between 3rd street and 12th street NW. The March will begin at 12:00pm (noon).

RESERVE FOR BUSES FROM PRINCETON TO WASHINGTON DC FOR MARCH FOR OUR LIVES ON SATURDAY, 3/24
The Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) has reserved buses to take area supporters from Princeton to Washington DC for the March for our Lives being organized under the leadership of high school students from Parkland, FL, where a mass shooting took place on February 14, killing 17 and wounding 14 people. The event is expected to attract as many as 500,000.
The buses will leave at 7:30 AM from the parking lot adjacent to the Princeton Municipal Building at 400 Witherspoon Street in Princeton, and arrive in Washington in time for the March for our Lives, scheduled to start at 12 Noon. The buses expect to depart DC at 5:00 PM and arrive in Princeton at about 9:00 PM.
A limited number of seats are available for reservation. Cost is $50 per seat for CFPA members; $75 per seat for non-members; and sliding scale for students or those with limited income who can’t afford that much. Scholarship donations to support those in need are also accepted. Reserve online at peacecoalition.org or by calling the CFPA office at (609) 924-5022.
“We are pleased to invite those who support common sense gun safety measures, such as a National Assault Weapons Ban and Universal Background Checks to reserve for our buses and join us in Washington on March 24. We are especially excited to support the leadership of young people demanding such common-sense steps, and urge the public to join us,” said the Rev. Robert Moore, Executive Director of CFPA.
