A sticker outlining a core Raven philosophy

A 16-page zine serving as a quick introduction to the struggles facing the USPS and why it needs to be saved. Much is at stake when we discuss the future of the USPS, including live-saving medications, the democratic process, millions of jobs, and the fate of any small business trying to compete in the big-tech-dominated online marketplace. This new zine by Raven owner Danny Caine briefly explains these issues and offers suggestions for steps forward as the USPS faces an assault by President Trump and his disruptive, unqualified postmaster. Each zine will be sent via USPS, and buying postage is the best way to support the USPS. Further, $1 from every retail sale of the zine will go to buying stamps which the Raven will distribute for free.
