Florence Spreads Message of Hope in Moving PSA to Save the Post Office

Florence Spreads Message of Hope in Moving PSA to Save the Post Office
'Mailbox' is a timely PSA to save the post office, reiterating that “The Mail carries hope. But only when it's delivered.” Produced out of Florence, who worked with award-winning director Spencer Creigh, the beautiful film resonates deeply with this year's unparalleled election.

Sharing footage of mailboxes in the US, Angela Bassett reads the words of Martin Luther King Jr’s letter to congress from March 1965, advocating for the right that every citizen deserves to exercise political freedom at the polls and vote. Dr. King's letter highlights the history of voter disenfranchisement in the US, calling attention to the fact that the USPS is essential to ensure that everyone maintains an equal right and ability to take part in the upcoming election. Angela was chosen to read the letter as someone who has a reverence for Martin Luther King’s legacy of expanding voting rights for all, and her seasoned voice communicates the gravity of this moment.

The USPS is vital to voting this year and the use of voter suppression has been a major issue in the lead-up to the election. In August, the struggling USPS warned that 46 states may not be able to deliver all mail-in ballots in time to be counted by 3rd November. After being starved for funds for some time, the postal service was forced to implement measures that slowed delivery in multiple states across the country, with critics of president Donald Trump insisting that he was denying the USPS financial aid in order to prevent people from voting by mail in the election.

“It’s really about voter suppression and the history of voter disenfranchisement in this country,” said Spencer. “We now see the politicising and perverting of a public service like the USPS continuing that unpatriotic tradition of suppressing American voters, and we couldn’t sit back and let that happen without making a powerful statement.”
