Dear Sisters and Brothers,
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. We are 70 days way from the General U.S
Election on November 03, 2020 and in addition we have other national events that requires our
immediate attention. I have listed some of these items below. Our immediate attention will help
our Unions and communities as we move forward during these challenging times.
● Please immediately contact your elected officials in Congress and Senate in support the
USPS funding legislation that the house recently passed. This funding will enable the men
and women that work for USPS to continue to provide valuable services to our
communities ,Veterans, Senior Citizens and the upcoming election on November 03, 2020.

● Please make sure that you fill out your 2020 Census by September 30, 2020. An accurate
Census count is important, as it allocates by population size over $675 Billion in crucial
federal government resources across the the U.S. California and Los Angeles. we cannot
afford to lose healthcare, education, and community resources due to being under counted
for the next 10 years. In addition , we also cannot afford to lose our voice and
representation in Congress. According to experts, California could potentially lose two
seats in the U.S House of Representatives. Please take five minutes to fill out the census
