The Take on Wall Street campaign is coordinating The Save The Post Office Coalition of over 300 organizations to protect and expand the U.S. Postal Service. This is a critical moment to stop the Post Office from being privatized, and instead, reinvent it as a hub for the services our communities desperately need, like postal banking. The coalition’s home, Take on Wall Street, aims to build a financial system for Black, white, and Brown working families, not the big Wall Street banks. The Take on Wall Street campaign is a project of Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund (AFREF).
