Stop Family Violence Semi-Postal
On October 8, 2003, the USPS issued its third semi-postal stamp, which raised funds to help stop family violence.
This stamp’s journey began in 1999 when a Denver social worker sent a letter to Colorado Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell. The social worker had a large caseload of battered women and abused children. He suggested that a semi-postal stamp could be issued to help raise funds for victims of domestic violence and to help prevent it in the future.
