APWU action to Save the Post Office sent a clear message, but our work is not done - YOUR HELP IS STILL NEEDED!

From our brothers and sisters of the American Postal Workers Union (APWU)................

On Tuesday, June 23, APWU members, our fellow postal workers and community allies took action across the country to send a loud and clear message to members of the Senate: Save the Post Office!

Dozens of coordinated events took place across the country and approximately 200,000 people participated on a livestream that celebrated the delivery to senators of more than 2 million petition signatures for the public Postal Service.

These actions helped us spread the word and strengthen the public’s resolve to protect our Post Office.

This is a key moment. We will have to continue to put pressure on our elected official this summer if we are going to secure vital funding to save the Postal Service. The offices of senators of all parties are telling us that they are feeling that pressure - so let's keep it up.

You can help persuade your senators right now by making a call. Dial 844-402-1001 or click here to be connected.

Here are photos from just a few of the actions that took place around the country.
