Tell U.S. Senate & USPS Board of Governors:

Fire Postmaster General Louis DeJoy 

Last year, then-President Trump’s handpicked Postmaster General Louis DeJoy repeatedly made headlines for his efforts to sabotage the Postal Service.

He imposed outrageous restrictions on postal workers, removed mailboxes by the truckload, and more. And though many of these dangerous directives were reversed by courts, thanks to lawsuits from voting rights groups -- we now know that hamstringing the USPS was a key part of Trump’s plan to undermine vote-by-mail in the 2020 election.

Trump even admitted it -- when he said he was against funding the USPS because “they need that money in order to make the Post Office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots.” [1]

But even though Trump is no longer president, the threat that he and DeJoy pose to our Postal Service remains. In fact, DeJoy just unveiled a 10-year plan for the USPS that would further slow down first-class mail delivery, reduce Post Office hours, and raise postage prices. [2]

That’s outrageous -- Americans nationwide are still counting on the Postal Service to safely deliver their paychecks, life-saving medications, letters from their loved ones, and more. But unless we take action, DeJoy will remain Postmaster General for -- in his words -- “a long time,” [3] calling the shots for the very agency he has tried to destroy.

On March 15th, President Biden officially nominated three new members to the USPS Board of Governors, which is the only body that has the power to fire DeJoy. They are currently awaiting Senate confirmation.

Every day that DeJoy remains in charge, our USPS is in jeopardy. That’s why the Senate must swiftly give up or down votes for Biden’s nominees to the Board of Governors -- and why the Board must fire DeJoy when they take office. If you agree, add your name today.
