Save Our Postal Service

August 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT

On Tuesday, August 25 thousands of people will take action across the country in the fight to save one of our most essential public institutions — the postal service. Chicago DSA is joining the call put out by the American Postal Workers Union to rally at post offices around the city and demand that we fully fund the USPS, end the Trump administration’s anti-democratic attacks, and protect this crucial social service.

CDSA is coordinating two solidarity rallies outside of local Post Offices in the evening as the offices are closing and workers ending their shift in conjunction with the APWU national day of action.

Uptown- 4850 N Broadway, Chicago, IL 60640, 5-6pm

We’ll also be doing a 24-hour social media storm from Monday night through Tuesday’s event to help build support for USPS and get the word out about the rally! Check out the social media toolkit to pitch in: https://tinyurl.com/Chicaog4USPS
