Mayor Greg Fischer today signed a Council resolution supporting the campaign to put Louisville native Muhammad Ali’s image on a USPS stamp

Louisville, KY – According to the city officials, Louisville Metro Council unanimously approved the resolution earlier this month.

The resolution signed is a part of an on-going campaign, #GetTheChampAStamp, that launched in June.

The Ali Center, Mayor and Ali’s family encourage the public to show their support for a Muhammad Ali stamp by sharing the hashtag #GetTheChampAStamp on social media, post photos of Ali that they believe would be fitting for a stamp, or writing letters of support.

Being considered for a stamp involves a multi-step process with the USPS, including submittal of historical information and important dates associated with the subject.

The Postal Service’s Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, which is appointed by the Postmaster General, selects subjects for recommendation and reviews criteria for eligibility. 

Among other criteria, the USPS honors those with extraordinary and enduring individual contributions to American society, history, and culture, or environment and who have achieved widespread national appeal or significance.

The process can take three years.
