People's World Hangout: Join the fight to save mail delivery!


Why is the Postal Service pretending it is losing money when, in fact, it is making a profit? What's behind the push to shut down post offices and privatize services? These questions and more will be discussed at our monthly People's World-sponsored Google Hangout.

Featuring John Dick, hero letter carrier who received the National Association of Letter Carriers' humanitarian of the year award. Dick remarked, "Letter carriers do a lot more than just deliver the mail - we save lives, we rescue people, we get hurt, we feed people. We keep people in touch with one another and help hold an entire nation together."

Also featuring Roscoe Woods, president of Local 480-481 of the American Postal Workers Union.

Join the fight to save mail delivery in America. Watch the Hangout live May 20 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time by accessing the link below:

  • I totally embrace this article. At one time I was a mail carrier and soon realize how much mail carriers do. Many of the seniors on my route, relied on me to brinng their monthly checks, letters from family members and for their daily hello, how you doing from me- their carrier and friend.

    I salute the work that they perform for our communities and we definitely need to become more aware of what is happening with our mail services, which are being drastically cut. Thanks once again for this article and I look forwards to hearing more about this struggle.

    Much love and respect, Mama Cassie Lopez
