The Friends of Reality Winner, an effort that Courage to Resist helped launch in the days following Reality’s arrest, are preparing to file a petition of clemency on her behalf. Basically, it’s a formal request to the president for a reduced sentence and early release. To get the president’s attention, whomever that may be at the time the petition arrives on his or her’s desk, the more letters of support from individuals and organizations, the better.
Note that if you feel uncomfortable with the salutation of the standard letter of support, which reads, “To the Honorable President of These United States” (or any other part of the letter), please write your own letter and email it to RealityAngel.Liz@activist.com (.pdf, .doc or .rtf files only please.)
Instructions for writing Reality Leigh Winner, as well as how to contribute to her prison commissary account.
Sign the petition to pardon Reality Winner or to commute her sentence to time served. Reality has been sentenced to 5 years in prison for sharing a secret doc about election insecurity with the media.
If this new plea deal is approved, she will have a maximum prison sentence of 5 years as opposed to the 10 years she faced.
Courage to Resist & the Stand with Reality campaign have made a mutual decision that the campaign will be led by close family & friends going forward.
Please sign today: “We ask the Department of Justice to allow the defense access to all of the evidence and relevant documents necessary for a fair trial.”
