FRAMINGHAM – On Saturday, August 22, there is a #SavethePostOffice rally at the main Framingham Post Office on Route 30.

This is one of many rallies being held across the country at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

MoveOn, RuralOrganizing.org, NAACP, Service Employees International Union, American Federation of Teachers, Working Families Party, the Leadership Conference on Civil & Human Rights, and Indivisible, in conjunction with partners across the country, are calling for nationwide actions in response to Trump’s attempts to destroy the U.S. Postal Service, said a press release.

On June 16, Trump installed a campaign megadonor, Louis DeJoy, as the new postmaster general. In just two months, Postmaster General DeJoy has reorganized the inner workings of the department and reassigned or displaced dozens of postal executives. DeJoy has called for hiring freezes, slashed hours, and created long delays, even stopping delivery in some places. Meanwhile, it has come to light that DeJoy had a multimillion-dollar stake in the USPS’s competitors, said the press release.

The Postal Service is a vital service, written into the foundation of our country in the constitution. We must have a fully funded and functional Post Office, and support postal workers who have been essential during this pandemic delivering life saving medicines, supplies to keep us healthy, and mail in ballots, said the press release

These actions are in support of postal workers, many of whom have lost a substantial portion of their income due to DeJoy’s changes and are being put in a position to compromise their professional ethics. We will support the many people who rely on the post office, including hundreds of thousands of the people of color, women, and military members and veterans that the postal service employs.  We are also here to support the people who rely most on the postal service including seniors, rural and indigenous folks, said the press release.
