Nationwide rallies in support of the United States Postal Service were planned on August 22 as the US House of Representatives was expected to vote on legislation to reverse operational changes that critics say delayed mail delivery.
The bill, called the ‘Delivering for America Act,’ would provide an additional $25 billion and ensure the Postal Service could not implement any operational changes until January 2021.
The pro-USPS demonstrations were organized by a coalition of groups for Saturday. This footage was shared on Twitter by @Annie25CO, who said it was filmed at a rally in Highlands Ranch in Douglas County, Colorado. Credit: @Annie25CO via Storyful
