Leonia Action Alliance is a grassroots community group working toward progress and inclusivity in our town and beyond.
Founded by Lauren Peccoralo, a primary care physician and mother of three, the alliance pushed for and supported Leonia's recent adoption of a Welcoming City Resolution. The alliance also conceived and sponsored the Leonia Climate March, a sister march of the People's Climate March.
Now 150-plus members strong, LAA coordinates and collaborates on local efforts to protect, advance and educate about our environment, social justice, healthcare, gun violence, and human rights.
