Union Veterans Council Condemns Racism in Georgia Senate District 23 Race

Racist attacks against veteran and candidate Ceretta Smith are unacceptable

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Union Veterans Council, AFL-CIO (UVC), the labor movement’s organization for union veterans, decries the racist, violent and vulgar attack against Georgia Senate District 23 candidate and Army veteran Ceretta Smith.

Yesterday, the Union Veterans Council sent the following letter to House and Senate leadership, copying all Senate and Member offices. The Trump administration has a rich history of saying one thing and doing another and America's veterans rely on the Postal Service for a variety of needs, including the ability to vote. Congress must act quickly to hold them accountable.

Once again, veterans have been left out of the conversation and stand to pay the consequences.  President Trump’s rash decision to defund the United States Postal System to fit a political agenda is disgraceful.  Veterans count on the USPS for a multitude of reasons and to sabotage it is an infringement of their rights in many ways.
