Chase Strangio writes about this special day:
In the face of everything, Chelsea engages with the world, models accountability, transparency and camaraderie, and imagines a more just future. Even as she is punished when she fights to live or chooses to try to die — Chelsea dares to claim her truth. She does not give up or give in and we are all better for it.
This year on her birthday, we have a chance to join her fight by calling on President Obama to free her.
