#HugsForChelsea: Give Chelsea Manning A Hug

President Barack Obama

Chelsea Manning saw injustice and stood up for what’s right. Now, she’s serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison.

She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation.

The clock is ticking. Let’s show the President how much support Chelsea has, and how many people are waiting for her to be released. She has suffered so much. We want to give her a hug.
