Group rallies to show post office support
STAR JOURNAL STAFF
A group of Northwoods residents joined hundreds of other groups across the nation Saturday by mobilizing to show support for the U.S. Postal Service.
Participants held signs and waved to passersby on the sidewalk across the street from the Rhinelander Post Office on Courtney Street.
“Those joining the actions want to protect and save the post office from malicious and unfounded attacks and to safeguard the integrity of our mail and elections,” said Jackie Cody, MoveOn organizer. “All across the United States Americans are coming together to stand up for a postal system that connects us, that we rely on for medications, paychecks and more, and that will literally be counted on to deliver democracy in the elections this fall.”
Cody said more than 650 demonstrations took place, including representatives of Indivisible, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, MoveOn, NAACP, RuralOrganizing.org, Service Employees International Union, Vets for the People and Working Famlies Party.
