On Saturday, March 18 members of the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) attended Mercer Greenfest (formerly the Living Local Expo) at Rider University. This event focused on sustainable living, and CFPA volunteers provided attendees with information on our No Wars, No Warming campaign. They also administered our "Penny Poll" (see below).
CFPA volunteers administered our "Penny Poll" where people used pennies to express how they would like their tax dollars to be spent. Participants then were given information on how their tax dollars are actually spent.
Here were the results of the penny poll:
Environment: 365 pennies
Education: 343 pennies
Health Care: 280 pennies
Housing: 158 pennies
Military: 112 pennies
Special thanks to our volunteers Ram, Marc, and Julia for organizing and managing CFPA's table!
