New crowd-funding campaign for Chelsea’s legal fees launched by Freedom of the Press Foundation
The Chelsea Manning Support Network applauds this new crowd-funding effort. It comes at a critical time, as we struggle to fund the legal team’s uninterrupted preparation for Chelsea’s upcoming appeal.


Trevor Timm, Freedom of the Press Foundation. July 15, 2015

Today we’re proud to announce a major new crowd-funding campaign in support of whistleblower Chelsea Manning to help pay for her important legal appeal. Chelsea is currently in the process challenging of her unjust Espionage Act conviction and draconian 35-year jail sentence at the Army Court of Appeals.
First Look Media, publisher of The Intercept, will match donations up made to Chelsea up to $50,000, and journalist Glenn Greenwald, a founding editor of First Look and co-founder of Freedom of the Press Foundation, will also personally match up an additional $10,000—for a total of $60,000 in matching funds! We hope this will give everyone even more incentive to donate, knowing that any contribution you make will automatically be doubled.
