FAQ: Postcards for the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
> Receiving Postcards <
I haven't received my postcards yet! When will they arrive?
All postcard packets have been mailed out to volunteers and should arrive by the end of August. Delays can occur, so we appreciate your patience with arrival timing.
Please note that address errors sometimes result in postcard packets that don't arrive. You can check your confirmation email for this campaign to see which address you signed up with. We are unable to send replacement packets of postcards.
> Writing Postcards <
My packet contains more than one postcard for each of my U.S. Senators. Is this an error?
No, this is intentional! Each postcard is pre-addressed to a different office location, some in DC and some in-state, with the goal of creating a flurry of constituent pressure from multiple entry points. If you would prefer to make each postcard unique, feel free to enlist friends and family in your state to help fill them out and mail them by September 12th!
I lost my instructions sheet – what should I write?
Check out a digital copy of the instructions here!
The instructions mention two different types of postcards — one version with "THANK YOU" on the front and one that does not say "THANK YOU" on the front. How can I spot the difference?
This slight design difference is circled below!
> Mailing Postcards <
When should I mail my postcards?
Drop them in the mail by September 12th, but the sooner the better!
My local post office said I need to buy stamps to mail the postcards – is this right?
A few volunteers have reported this happening in the past. We want to assure you that the printed postage on the postcards is correct and valid. It is part of a USPS program called "Share Mail". Unfortunately, some USPS employees may not know about this fairly new postage program. We suggest that you simply drop your postcards in a blue USPS mailbox outside your local post office, or one that's located in your neighborhood. This way, your postcards will be accepted into the mail stream automatically and processed without delay!
> Other Questions <
Do I need to add stamps to the postcards and cover the cost of postage?
No, MomsRising is covering all postage costs to make this project fully accessible to everyone that is interested in participating. The postcards all have pre-stamped indicias.
