‘A vote against adequate, timely funding for the USPS is an anti-civil rights vote’FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEContact: Shin Inouye, [email protected], 202.869.0398WASHINGTON – Citing concerns about the financial insecurity facing the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and 105 other civil rights groups called on Congress to support robust funding for the agency in the next coronavirus response package.
“A vote against adequate, timely funding for the USPS is an anti-civil rights vote,” the groups wrote.
