Maplewood Post Office Rally to Support USPS

WHO: SOMA Action, the South Orange/Maplewood-based grassroots organization focused on driving progressive change, is organizing a rally at the Maplewood Post Office to support the United States Postal Service.

WHAT: A community protest to support the USPS in the face of Donald Trump’s attacks and defunding efforts which threaten our right to vote and the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

WHY: We must act now to stop these attacks and protect our election process. The new Postmaster General, Republican mega-donor Louis DeJoy, is orchestrating a general slowdown in operations, reducing the time that mechanical mail sorting machines operate, cutting overtime for postal workers and reducing delivery standards so that mail is now routinely left behind on workroom floors and loading docks.

SOMA Action is one of a dozen organizations partnering with Blue Wave NJ to stage demonstrations across New Jersey. These groups demand that the full Postal Service funding passed by the U.S. House of Representatives be immediately enacted into law and Trump’s political appointees cease their sabotage of mail operations and prepare the postal service for the surge in mail-in ballots this fall.

WHEN: Friday, August 21, 2020, from 12 PM - 1 PM.

WHERE: Maplewood Post Office 195 Maplewood Ave

*Face masks and 6-foot social distancing requirements will be strictly complied with at all events.
