Bless the USPS - Save the Post Office
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has provided mail delivery as a public service in the United States since it was established in the U.S. Constitution. The USPS connects Americans to life-saving medicines, important products, and to each other across distant and sometimes remote locations--and in 2020 the USPS will connect millions of Americans to the ballot box. Our postal workers offer an essential service in this pandemic and support a faithful democracy that enables Americans to vote safely in COVID.
In this pandemic, the USPS needs emergency funding to maintain delivery services that meet the needs of the nation. But the trusted public institution has been caught up in political controversy and Americans are noticing the impact. Limitations on postal workers and cost-cutting measures have caused delays and concerns about the impacts on mail-in ballot delivery for the election. While officials at the USPS assure us that mail-in ballots will be prioritized, the reality is that more funding is critically needed.
