March for Peace Set to Promote Healthcare Justice
The Green Party of Ocean County will host March for Peace: End the Wars in Toms River on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 1-3 pm.
The event will begin at the courtyard next to the Ocean County Library at 101 Washington St., followed by a march through downtown Toms River. It will culminate with a rally at the same courtyard.
“We want to bring attention to the president and legislators that war has an effect all over our country,” said Jessica Clayton, Green Party member and member of the Brick Board of Education. “It destroys our environment and takes up funding that could go to Medicare for All.”
