On Saturday, March 24, the Coalition for Peace Action was actively involved with several of the Marches for Our Lives. These rallies took place across the nation, standing with the survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, and calling for substantial gun safety reform. CFPA sent 70 people from Princeton to the D.C. March on charter buses, and co-sponsored the Princeton, Doylestown, and Philadelphia local events.

"Thousands of Philadelphians and area students, parents, and friends marched on March 24th, as part of the 800+ cities where people marched for our lives, in solidarity with the Washington march that day. We all need to keep fighting for change. Go Philly Marchers!" - Ed Aguilar, for CFPA Pennsylvania
