Here is what you need to know:
Postal Service is under threat -- we absolutely must act.

The USPS is a lifeline for many Americans — millions will rely on the Postal Service for everything from mail-in ballots to life-saving medications. The Trump administration is trying to undermine the agency and threaten our right to vote safely and reliably by mail this fall; through depriving the Post Office of the funding it needs.

President Trump’s handpicked postmaster, General Louis DeJoy, is attempting to dismantle the USPS. You’ve seen the stories all over the news: public mailboxes being removed by the truckload, sudden personnel shake-ups, new restrictions for postal workers that limit their ability to bring us our mail every day. Not only would this directly impede what’s needed for a safe and secure election, but they’d be accomplishing a major item on right-wing donors’ wishlist — sabotaging a popular, successful, and necessary public service for private profit.

The USPS couldn’t be more crucial to the survival of our democracy, especially this year. We must protect the United States Post Office so that Americans can safely and easily vote by mail in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

More than 1 in 3 Americans are planning to vote-by-mail in the 2020 presidential election and they’ll depend on our Postal Service to deliver their ballots on time.

We CAN save the United States Postal Service if we’re willing to speak up.

Common Cause is leading the grassroots work supporting the Postal Service…

We are suing postmaster general Louis DeJoy to make sure every American can rely on the Postal Service. 

We are doing everything within our power to STOP Trump’s manufactured Postal Service crisis. Common Cause and our allies filed a lawsuit to reverse the dangerous changes that Trump’s hand-picked postmaster general has made.

DeJoy, a Trump mega-donor with no prior USPS experience, is trying to undermine the agency from the inside. He’s already been forced to backpedal, saying he wouldn’t make any more changes before the election — but won’t commit to fixing the damage he’s already done.
