The American Postal Workers Union is calling on local postal workers and supporters to gather on Tuesday in Downtown Kalamazoo. Tuesday, August 25th has been marked by the union as a national day of action to save the Post Office. According to a release from the union, postal workers and supporters will gather at a masked, socially distanced vigil, between the hours of 4:30 PM and 5:30 PM in front of the Arcadia Post Office on East Michigan. The group plans to sign and mail a giant postcard to the U.S. Senate c/o Mitch McConnell, calling for:

  • Senate funding of at least $25 Billion for the United States Postal Service to help it survive its current COVID-19 induced financial crisis and protect this national treasure!
  • Stopping the mail slowdown policies introduced by Postmaster General DeJoy!
  • Ensuring public confidence in voting-by-mail by providing all necessary resources for the timely delivery of election mail!
