Imagine a world without the Post Office. It could happen. Postal Service leaders told Congress that unless it receives additional funding, the system will be out of money to operate by September. Today is the national Day of Action to Save the Post Office, and hundreds of thousands of petitions will be delivered to Capitol Hill. To raise the temperature back home there will be car caravans (see Calendar for the one here in DC) throughout the country filled with people who are demanding that the Post Office be saved from bankruptcy. Make sure you are counted; sign the petition to Congress, find out more about actions today and/or call your Senator here. The Post Office is reeling from the coronavirus outbreak, which has slowed business mail to a trickle. Despite this, the Postal Service has continued to deliver six days a week to every address in the country. Older Americans in particular rely on the mail to deliver their prescription medicines and for a link to the outside world. The government has approved trillions of coronavirus “relief” for wealthy corporations, and tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans; let’s make sure the Postal Service gets the help it needs to weather this crisis.
