The Harry Potter Alliance Needs Your Help to Save the US Postal Service
Our own owl post, the United States Postal Service (USPS), is in trouble and needs our help! The USPS is currently facing unprecedented challenges, with an overall decline in its mail volume by one-third, due to the coronavirus crisis. Since the USPS is entirely self-funded and does not rely on any tax dollars, the loss of business and revenue has been especially devastating. Although advocates have been petitioning Congress for aid in the form of a stimulus bill, the initial grant was blocked by the Department of the Treasury.
The USPS is a crucial service that every American needs. It serves all regions regardless of profit and provides essential help, such as delivering life-saving medication to patients and submitting vote-by-mail ballots in states that allow registered voters to do so. As such, the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) is taking action to save the USPS and is asking volunteers to contribute to the Save Our Owl Post campaign. Using the postcard templates below, Americans are urged to contact their representatives to push for more funding for the USPS.
For more updates on the Save Our Owl Post campaign, fans and activists can head to the HPA’s website or follow the HPA on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr.
