Join Us to Stand up for Justice for Sherry Chen March 14th and 15th

Ohioan Sherry Chen was an award winning scientist at National Weather Service and her work was used by National Weather Service, US. Army Corps of Engineers and several other agencies to avoid loss of lives and property damage from Midwest to East Coast. An immigrant and American citizen, she had dedicated her life to our nation.

Ms. Chen’s life was turned upside down when Sherry was wrongfully accused of espionage by the government in 2014. Someone she worked with assumed Ms. Chen was a Chinese national and raised the unfounded accusations. After a national outcry, the charges were all dropped before trial in 2015. The New York Times called for “an explanation or apology from the government.” Instead, Ms. Chen was dismissed based on the same unfounded charges.

Sherry is appealing to the Federal Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) against the government for wrongful termination, racial discrimination and retaliation. The hearing will take place in Cincinnati.
