On Tuesday, February 21st about 150 Philadelphia-area residents took part in a rally, joined in by the Pennsylvania branch of the Coalition for Peace Action, members of PSR (Physicians for Social Responsiblity) Philadelphia, and many others, part of an ongoing demand for Senator Pat Toomey to meet with us at a town hall. Sen. Toomey's last Philadelphia town hall was two years ago, in 2014.

The group rallied with intersectional demands, including the stopping of "loose nukes" (by halting nuclear weapons escalation and supporting SB 200, a bill to prevent a President from unilaterally ordering a nuclear strike without Congressional approval).
