The Coalition for Peace Action partnered with the Trenton Branch of the NAACP to bring together people of faith and good will to strongly reject symbols of white supremacist violence and hatred, in response to a hangman's noose that was found on the Princeton University Campus.
About 50 supporters gathered on June 27, 2021, by the Princeton University Chapel. Faith leaders and community members were invited to share symbols of love from their faith or cultural traditions. Participants and symbols represented a variety of faith traditions, including Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, and Unitarian Universalism.
