Sign the Petition: Fire Postmaster General Louis DeJoy

USPS Board of Governors

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 for the USPS Board of Governors, which is the only body that has the power to fire DeJoy. And now, all three of them have been confirmed by the Senate.

Every day that DeJoy remains in charge, our USPS is in jeopardy. That’s why -- now that Biden's nominees can officially join the Board -- Louis DeJoy must be fired. If you agree, add your name today.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy spent most of last year trying to destroy the Postal Service. He was a major player in ex-President Trump’s plot to silence mail-in voters by sabotaging the USPS -- and even now that President Biden has taken office, DeJoy is still trying to gut this vital public service.

The Senate recently confirmed Biden's three nominees for the USPS Board of Governors -- meaning the Board now has the votes needed to oust DeJoy. To save our Postal Service, we call on the Board to do so immediately.
