What can you do to help Save The Post Office? We’ve compiled some resources to help you take action.

 

What We’re Asking

We won’t let anyone sabotage the Post Office and steal the election this fall!
  • Reverse Service Cuts: We must immediately reverse service cuts at the Post Office, and investigate Louis DeJoy’s mismanagement, sabotage, and conflicts of interest.
  • Pass USPS Emergency Relief & Protect Our Vote: Congress needs to pass a much-needed $25 billion in Coronavirus relief with no harmful strings attached, and pass $3.6 billion in elections funding to protect our vote.
  • Stop USPS Privatization: We need to stop the Post Office from being privatized, and instead, reinvent it as a hub for the services our communities desperately need.

If You Have 10 Minutes… Call Your Senators

Saving the Post Office requires URGENT Congressional action. Call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121, ask for your Senator, and use this simple script:
“Hello, my name is _____ and my zip code is ______. I am concerned about the future of the Public Postal Service and am asking Senator ______ to support legislation to reverse service cuts, provide it with relief funding, and stop privatization. My friends and neighbors depend on it to vote, receive life-saving medication, and run their small businesses. Thank you.”
The American Postal Workers Union also has a dialer tool available. Click HERE to access.
