Today’s Action: Tell the House to pass the Delivering For America Act, and attend “Save The Post Office Saturday” TOMORROW!

Joe Biden crushed it yesterday, and the entire Democratic Party succeeded in presenting a clear vision for a brighter American future this week. But we need to deal with the dystopian present to ensure a better future.

The House has reconvened over recess to vote on the Delivering for America Act, legislation to block newly-installed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy from carrying out his recent sabotage of USPS to steal the November election for Trump.

Thanks to the pandemic, millions of additional Americans will use USPS to vote absentee this November. But DeJoy has eliminated overtime, ensuring postal workers cannot stay late when an office has an abundance of mail to deliver, shortened location hours, removed hundreds of mail sorting machines, and abruptly reassigned over 20 executives. He’s threatened to close entire USPS locations in the near future as well.

The Delivering for America Act would force DeJoy to undo these changes and block him from carrying out more.

The vote is expected tomorrow! Call or email your Representative and tell them to vote YES on the Delivering for America Act. Then, search for a “Save The Post Office Saturday” event to attend TOMORROW near you…or plan your own!

We’ve got warnings from all over the country: USPS administrators telling us they won’t be able to deliver voter ballots for the November 3 election on time, or turn them around quickly enough to be counted. We’ve already seen hints of the catastrophe to come, in multiple primary elections that left crates of ballots uncounted or ballots that never arrived to begin with.

That’s why we can’t stop at passing the Delivery for America Act, which still has to pass the Senate and get Trump’s signature. We need to take to the streets and keep raising the alarm, and tomorrow’s Day of Action does exactly that.

First, email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and tell them to support the Delivering for America Act (vote expected tomorrow). Next, plan out tomorrow morning by searching for a “Save The Post Office Saturday” event near you – or create your own!
