Honor Chinese Railroad Workers!
United States postage stamps are symbols that commemorate the diversity of and sacrifices made in America.
In 1865, Chinese immigrants began building, track by track, the railroad that first united our nation. Their numbers grew to 12,000 by 1868, and their work is an important part of America’s history of progress and unity.
If you agree that the immigrant laborers who built the transcontinental railroad should be celebrated, add your name to tell the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee to create a United States postage stamp in their honor.
