 Today’s Action: Save the United States Postal Service

In the wake of COVID-19, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is suffering badly. In fact, with the severe drop in mail during the outbreak, it could completely run out of money by September and be forced to shut down…two months shy of the November elections.

But USPS has been left out of every single Congressional relief package for COVID thus far, and Trump threatened to actually veto the $2 trillion CARES Act if it included USPS support. His unfounded vendetta against USPS aligns nicely with longtime Republican interest in privatizing (selling to the highest bidder) the postal service…

…and his refusal to provide emergency funding conveniently is yet another thinly veiled GOP attempt at voter suppression to date: shutting down the service which would deliver millions of vote-by-mail envelopes for this November’s election.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and demand emergency funding for the United States Postal Service in the next COVID-19 relief package. BONUS: visit and buy a few packets of forever stamps (which don’t expire) to infuse the postal service with much-needed cash NOW (they’ll deliver to your mailbox)!

It’s not just “regular” mail that goes through the postal service – those who receive prescription medication delivery and many small businesses depend heavily on USPS, in and outside of pandemics.

And the USPS has a workforce of 600,000, including 100,000 veterans. As essential workers, they’re seeing the life-threatening effects of COVID-19, with 19 fatalities, 500+ positive tests, and over 6,000 in self-quarantine to date. Trump’s refusal to fund their livelihoods is criminal, particularly in the face of his insistence on funding large corporations that didn’t save up for hard times.

The United States Postal Service is mandated by the Constitution, and Congress and Trump must be held accountable to their duties to uphold and protect it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to provide emergency funding for USPS in the upcoming COVID-19 relief package. If you can, help out USPS now by buying several packets of forever stamps for your mail needs over the next few months (they’ll deliver to you)!
