Thank you to all who were able to join us for this past Saturday's rally to #SaveThePostOffice! The rally was co-sponsored by CFPA and MoveOn. 

On August 22, about 50 people gathered at the Alexander Road Post Office in Princeton, as part of over 800 nationwide events that day. Participants wore masks and stood at safe distances.

Our speakers included Asm. Andrew Zwicker, who described how he is pushing legislation through the New Jersey State Legislature that includes the ability to track on a state website where your mail-in ballot is in the process, and 5-day window to fix any problems with your ballot (for example, a missing signature).

In addition, we heard from voting security expert Dr. Andrew Appel, CFPA board member Mark Pepper, and longtime CFPA ally Dr. Frank von Hippel, who led the event. CPFA’s Chair, Irene Goldman, read a statement from the Trenton branch of the NAACP.

On August 9, CFPA was joined by two excellent guest speakers: Dr. Dan Ellsberg, former military analyst, whistleblower, and anti-war activist; and Shiho Burke, the daughter of Hiroshima survivors. Watch the entire program below!

In addition, Dr. Zia Mian of the Princeton Program for Science and Global Security made remarks in tribute to Dr. Bruce Blair, an expert on the risks of nuclear war and an ally to CFPA, who recently passed away. 

Also on August 9, the Rev. Robert Moore's pre-recorded sermon (watch below!) was part of the virtual Sunday service for Christ Congregation of Princeton, for the 75th Anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. 

In his sermon, he addresses the looming threat of—and reveals the potential solution for—nuclear escalation.

June 20, 2020 -- On behalf of the Coalition for Peace Action, Ed Aguilar, of the Pennsylvania office, presented a 2020 CFPA Certificate to DANIELLE ALURA, this year's Elite Miss Pennsylvania, for her service in the cause of peace and sustainability. The event was co-sponsored by the UN Association of Greater Philadelphia, and included members of the Asian-American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), owners of scores of hotels from New Jersey to North Carolina, who have endorsed Danielle's campaign of "No Excuse for Single-Use Plastics", by which many tons of non-biodegradable plastics will be removed from our landfills and ocean waste. Thanks to all who joined us!

On June 20, 2020, CFPA was part of a virtual Pride event hosted by the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice. The 3-hour celebration was viewed live by over 7,000 people, and included guests such as Billy Porter and Gov. Phil Murphy, and was recognized in a letter from Barack Obama. The videos below from CFPA were played during the event.
