On January 21 the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) co-organized a bus to the Women's March on Washington, and participated in several regional "sister marches." We marched for our core peace goals and in solidarity with other organizations. Please see below for more information and coverage of the marches.

Women's March: Washington, D.C.

CFPA Board Member Kip Cherry and Assistant Director Erica DeKranes co-captained a bus of approximately 55 people to Washington D.C. to participate in the Women's March. Marchers attended a rally, followed by a march culminating on Pennsylvania Avenue (in front of the White House). Rally speakers and performers included Gloria Steinem, Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, and others.

Marchers remained peaceful and positive, utilizing creative signs, pink hats, and suffragette-style sashes. The crowds were greater than expected (approximately 500,000), sending a powerful message to law makers.

Women's March: Trenton, NJ

Following an initial rally at the War Memorial, the approximately 6,000 participants marched to the State House in Trenton, NJ. Several speakers addressed the marchers, including Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman. A number of CFPA members and supporters participated.

Women's March: Bucks County, PA

Over 1,000 people participated in "sister rallies" in Bucks County, PA. Click here for a news article on the event. Bucks County CFPA coordinator, Cathy Leary, was a prominent participant. See a video (featuring Cathy) by clicking here.

Our Mission
