This page wins first place for the clarity and resolution of the cover. The red and blue color scheme runs throughout the cover. The choice of pictures were great and the slogan button in the middle signifying unity brings it all together.

"2019 CT VETERANS STAND DOWN EVENT"

Judges Comments 
Veterans are an important group that we must continue to take care of. They are plagued with many issues from mental health to job security. The story on Stand Downs was a great way to inform members and the community of the resources provided for veterans and alleviates the shame of needing help.

Take Action

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) awarded the $6 billion contract for the next generation of postal vehicles to Oshkosh Defense, a company with a reputation for tough military trucks built with union labor with just a small number of electric vehicles on order.

But instead of using this opportunity to expand quality jobs under a decades-old union contract, the company plans to refurbish a vacant warehouse in another state and build these vehicles without a commitment to union wages or representation.

Let’s Build Back Better and put letter carriers in union-made vehicles that are good for the planet. Add your name and sign the petition if you agree.
