Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports campaigns by Americans for Financial Reform, Progressive Caucus Action Fund, Progressive Democrats of America, Progress America, Americans for Tax Fairness Action Fund, Democracy for America, Common Dreams, Americans for Democratic Action, Our Revolution, and others.

The “Postal Banking Act” creates a postal bank to provide low-cost basic financial services to people who do not have access, or have limited access, to America’s banking system.

We will send your email messages to your Senators and your House member
.

With the “Postal Banking Act” (S.3891), the United States Post Office can provide over 7 million households access to banking services that they currently lack. 90% of zip codes in rural areas lack a single bank or credit union, forcing many people to rely on expensive check cashers.

The “Postal Banking Act” will allow post offices to provide basic financial services like low-cost savings and checking accounts. It can drastically reduce predatory practices like payday loans, high-fee prepaid debit cards, and overdraft fees.

Please pass the “Postal Banking Act” to support the USPS and help underserved communities.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
