This film series is a fund raiser for the National Post Office Collaborate and the Save the Berkeley Post Office Committee. They are working to keep our Berkeley Post Office from being sold by the USPS. The Collaborate was successful in saving a post office building through legal action when a preliminary injunction was issued against the sale of the historic Stamford, CT Post Office. We may have to pursue legal action to save the Berkeley Post Office. Unfortunately, legal action is quite costly and funds must be raised to continue.
