The current situation with the United States Postal Service is nothing short of unacceptable, so yesterday, we filed a lawsuit against the United States Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, in his official capacity.
As the country faces an uphill battle against COVID-19 and systemic racism, we’re witnessing a significant onslaught against our postal system at a time when prompt mail delivery matters more than ever, especially for voters of color. This willful and blatant attempt to obstruct the mail system amidst a pandemic – and by way of doing so, the November elections – is a direct threat to the people of this nation’s right to vote in a fair and free election.
The NAACP is determined to #SaveTheUSPS even if our leaders in Washington aren’t.
Do you part! Contact your member of Congress and demand that they do all that is in their power to #SavetheUSPS. Show your support by taking the following actions:
- Share your support for the USPS by taking a photo in front of your local USPS post office (with your NAACP gear visible). Then, post it on your social media with the hashtags #SaveTheUSPS and #DeliverDemocracy
- Tweet your Senator and demand that they pass emergency funding to protect the USPS
The USPS is integral to so many facets of American life. We must all do our part now to ensure we save it and #DeliverDemocracy. Join the NAACP in the fight to #DeliverDemocracy In Solidarity, Derrick Johnson @DerrickNAACP President and CEO NAACP.
