On Tuesday, December 6 the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) led a Lobby Day to Washington, D.C. that focused on preserving the Iran Nuclear Agreement, curtailing nuclear modernization, and responding to climate change. The delegation included over 20 people from PA and NJ who met with the offices of Senator Pat Toomey (PA), Senator Bob Casey (PA), Senator Cory Booker (NJ), Senator Bob Menendez (NJ), and Representative Dwight Evans (PA-2nd Dist.). Some members of the delegation also ran into Senator Bernie Sanders in the hallway!
The delegation asked Senator Toomey's aides for support on climate change initiatives and limiting spending on nuclear weapons.
Prof. Frank von Hippel of Princeton University (center, with tie) discussed the implications of nuclear modernization with Senator Cory Booker's aides.
