Please make calls to the White House, and members of Congress.
White House Switchboard 202-456-1414
Hello, my name is __________. I am a registered voter from the state of ____________ and want to express my strong opposition to the President's proposal to privatize the US Postal Service. The proposal was included in the President's June 21 plan to reorganize the federal government. The proposal undermines the credibility of the President's Task Force on the Postal System, which is due to finalize its recommendations by August 10. In addition, postal privatization would destroy universal mail service, raise postage rates and gut essential services to rural America. Thank you.

I'm calling to urge Congressman ____________/ Senator _______________ to oppose the President Trump's June 20 proposal to privatize the US Postal Service. Furthermore, I ask the Congressman/Senator to convey his/her opposition of postal privatization to the President. The President's proposal undermines the credibility of his own Task Force on the Postal System, which is due to finalize its recommendations by August 10. In addition, postal privatization would destroy universal mail service, raise postage rates and gut essential services to rural America and other postal reliant communities. If the Congressman has any questions, please have him/her call me back. My phone number is ___________. Thanks very much for your time.
