DSA4USPS: Rural Free Delivery — Past, Present and Future
Sunday, April 18
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
DSA National Event: In its fifth educational webinar, DSA4USPS will explore the postal service's mandate to serve all customers equally, whether they live in New York City or an unincorporated town. Rural delivery is one of the most important functions of the postal service, but because it is unprofitable, attacks on it are more likely than ever. Join Dave Staiger, West Michigan rural letter carrier and member of the National Rural Letter Carrier Association; Cathy Kennedy, from the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and who fought tirelessly for pay equity for Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers; Katherine Devine of World Wildlife Federation, to share about their proposal for "Farmer Post", similar to the Canadian farm-to-table proposal; and Sam, a rural USPS customer from the Southwest Louisiana DSA chapter. This webinar will be moderated by Emily Y. from Charlottesville DSA.
