Chelsea Manning

NCTE Calls for Commuting Chelsea Manning’s Sentence

On Tuesday, the National Center for Transgender Equality sent a letter to President Obama urging the commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence for disclosing classified information to the media. Manning, a transgender woman, is serving the seventh year of a 35-year sentence in a military men’s prison. The letter notes the President’s strong record of defending the dignity of transgender people, working to improve prison conditions, and granting clemency in appropriate cases, and urges him to do so in Ms. Manning’s case.
