Save the USPS!

Seeing a lot of posts about why the GOP wants to destroy the Post Office. Came across a great twitter thread from an actual postal worker. There are many reasons related to keeping power, destroying unions, antipathy for Black people, and in addition to the points in the thread, just want to add: folks in rural communities and folks that do not have stable housing depend on P.O.

The USPS, whether urban or rural, are necessary to our lives.
