Ended Religious Cancellations by Post Office (November 1977)

AG PostOffice

FFRF’s very first lawsuit, challenging the use of a religious cancellation by the Post Office in Madison, Wisconsin, successfully ended the violation in November 1977. The federal lawsuit set national precedent. Below is a copy of a letter from the USPS in January 1978, after Anne Gaylor followed up on a similar violation occurring in Oakland, assuring FFRF that the cancellation was . . . cancelled.
