Evan from Fight for the Future sez, "Chelsea Manning has already spent more time behind bars than any other whistleblower in U.S. history. She's been systematically mistreated, subjected to torture, and denied access to desperately needed health care while serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison."
"And if we don't do something right now, Chelsea's life is literally in danger. KT Mcfarland, Trump's pick for Deputy National Security Advisor, has repeatedly called for Chelsea to be executed.

Please sign and spread the word. Chelsea risked everything to do what she thought was right. Now she needs our help. Please do your part."
