DSA4USPS: Dump DeJoy -- Why and How
Start: Sunday, August 22, 2021• 4:00 PM • Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)
This is a virtual event
In the seventh of a series of webinars on saving and improving the postal service, this panel takes up the fight against Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Trump-crony and Republican megadonor, DeJoy has launched a Ten-Year Plan (“Delivering for America”) featuring mail delay, price hikes, cuts and closures of mail facilities and privatization schemes. Price hikes in August, mail delay in place by September, closures by November, privatization ongoing. Preparing for the fight, this webinar provides an in depth look at why we need to remove DeJoy and how we’re going to do it.
