At the Dyke March last week I found the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. And I've been obsessed with them ever since.

They got this big project to reinvent the post office to provide fair financial services and internet access. To connect remote communities. To check in on disabled and elderly folks. To work on food delivery. To move to electric vehicles. To work with indigenous communities to acknowledge the colonial past and present of the postal service and reinvent themselves to provide the services and support those communities want.

Essentially, the postal workers union wants to build the #solarpunk future.
