The Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) and Trenton Friends Meeting are hosting a group of young interfaith peace walkers on their way from Philadelphia to New York in a Peace Walk for Nuclear Abolition as they arrive in the area on Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25. The walkers will begin their Walk on April 22, Earth Day, in Philadelphia, and are on their way to New York for the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference starting at U.N. Headquarters on May 3, and for public events immediately before that. There will be a potluck dinner starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 24 at the Trenton Friends Meeting, 142 E. Hanover Street in Trenton. All are welcome, and encouraged to bring a dish to share. Following the meal, CFPA Executive Director Rev. Bob Moore will facilitate discussion with the walkers, in which attendees can ask questions and interact with the walkers and each other. On Sunday, April 25, the walkers will leave from Trenton at approximately 11 a.m. following their attendance at the weekly Meeting for Worship at the Trenton Meeting. Supporters are encouraged to join them for all or part of the walk to Princeton, which will follow Route 206 through Lawrenceville.

At 5 p.m., CFPA is sponsoring a welcoming Rally and Gathering at Palmer Square until approximately 6 p.m. Interested people from the area, especially those who were unable to express their support for the walkers in Trenton for the April 24 event, are encouraged to come.
