Help Sherry to Help Ourselves
The persecution of Sherry Chen, a loyal, naturalized American citizen, has entered its seventh year.
Wrongly accused of spying for China by our government, she won the dismissal of her criminal case. Fired by the U.S. Department of Commerce, she won her job back with a blockbuster decision, concluding her to be a victim of “gross injustice.”
And yet she is still denied from returning to work as a hydrologist to save American lives and properties in the Ohio River Valley, for which she consistently received excellent ratings and awards.
Sherry has been receiving interim relief. She can quietly wait for justice to be upheld. However, after carefully considering all the pros and cons, including the ordeal of revisiting the pains and sufferings in the last six years, she is fighting back.
She is suing the government for malicious prosecution and false arrest, and compensation for her damage (Case 1:19-cv-00045-TSB, Chen v. The United States of America) caused by egregious misdeeds identified by the MSPB decision .
This is a fight for her rights and dignity. This is also a fight for the many innocent Chinese Americans who are cast in the shadows of fear and suspicion, while being recklessly profiled and becoming collateral damage and convenient scapegoats in the name of national security.
The United States is a nation ruled by law. When the authority is misused and abused, the government must be held accountable.
The path travelled by Sherry Chen has been paved by tears and anguish. However, she was able to endure because of the many friends and supporters who have stood by her with love and passion.
We appeal to all Americans to stand with Sherry Chen again in her continuing fight for justice and fairness. Please make a donation to https://www.sherrychendefensefund.org/donate.html today. A donation of $5 is not too small; a donation of $5,000 is not too much.
