A rally attended by elected officials and community leaders was held outside the Cesar Chavez Post Office in Pilsen on Monday to demand more bilingual staff after a viral Facebook post detailed how one of its clerks allegedly refused to serve four customers because they did not speak English.
In the February 3 post, Evelyn Gonzalez claimed she saw a U.S. Postal Service agent at the post office telling at least four people: “I do not speak Spanish, I cannot help you.”
Gonzalez said she tried to assist with three of the customers, while the clerk allegedly also refused to help an elderly woman who needed a letter sent, “cutting her off again and telling her no.”
