On Thursday, Mar. 2, Bucks County community members and organizations gathered together at the corner of State Street and Main Street to hold a candlelight vigil and announce a plan for community action in response to recent KKK activity in the area, and other anti-semitic, xenophobic and racist events throughout Bucks County.

On Wednesday, Mar. 1, at a press conference in Doylestown Borough, Barbara Simmons, the Executive Director of The Peace Center, stated that she has never seen such a high resurgence of anti-semitic, xenophobic and racist activity in Bucks County in her thirty years of working with community-based organizations and related peace activism groups.
