Community Rally to Protect Saturday Mail Delivery

March 24th Day of Action highlights need to protect six day postal delivery

[SAN DIEGO] – Concerned citizens will rally on Sunday, March 24 to protect Saturday mail delivery and demand that Congress deliver a better plan to strengthen the Postal Service for the future. The rally will take place at the Downtown Post Office, 815 E Street on March 24 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All members of the community are invited to attend.

The Postal Service’s plan to shrink the Postal Service by ending six-day service is an attack on the future of this great institution, on the customers who need it and on the employees who support it. Many Americans — especially small-business owners, senior citizens and rural residents — would suffer if the strength and reach of our Postal Service is compromised. In addition, cutting Saturday mail delivery would delay important household and business transactions, including bills, invoices and personal communications, and may force customers to shift to high-cost competing services.

The U.S. Postal Service is America’s only universal communications network, reaching every address in America six days a week. Established by the Constitution and using no taxpayer funding for its operations, the Postal Service is a vital public institution that California cannot afford to see reduced or dismantled.
