Chelsea Manning was released recently when the grand jury that had demanded her testimony was closed. She was in jail for refusing to participate in a grand jury investigating Wikileaks releases prior to 2016.

Unfortunately, it is expected that she will be called before another grand jury and jailed for refusing to participate with it. You can view or read her recent statement on these proceedings.

We support Chelsea Manning in her struggle to stand for her conscience and principles. To fail to support Chelsea and other whistleblowers now will only embolden those who would limit our First Amendment right to know what our government does in our name.
