Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Burbank) is pushing to commemorate P-22 mountain lion with a postage stamp. In a letter to the federal committee that recommends new U.S. stamps, Schiff wrote that P-22 was a “magnificent and wild creature, who reminded us all that we are part of a natural world so much greater than ourselves.”
The Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, an 11-member group that reviews thousands of submissions each year, will consider the P-22 proposal. The committee meets quarterly and recommends about two dozen designs per year.
Members of the public can write in and support the nomination, or nominate P-22 themselves, Schiff said. All communications to the stamp committee must be mailed — yes, with a stamp — to Washington, D.C.
Please write your support to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, 475 L’Enfant Plaza, SW Room 3300, Washington, DC 20260-3501.
Don’t forget to include a stamp when mailing!
