The Chester County Peace Movement formed as a coalition of individuals in Pennsylvania in 2002 in response to the threat of war against Iraq to establish a combined voice to express support of all efforts for world peace, and, more specifically, opposition to a war with Iraq. In less than four months, CCPM grew to a mailing list of more than 700 people, representing at least 1,000 people in Chester County.
CCPM members represent all political parties, levels of income, and occupations, as well as people of all (or no) religious faiths. We charge no membership fee, and we even provide financial assistance for activities that charge fees. We encourage you to check for Upcoming Events.
You are welcome to attend all activities, including the weekly Vigil for Peace every Saturday morning from 11am-12pm at the corner of High St. and Market St. in West Chester, PA.
