Sign on the Letter to Commerce Secretary Raimondo – End the 10 Years of Injustice for Sherry Chen Now


Justice delayed is justice denied! APA Justice Task Force urges all concerned U.S. organizations and individuals to co-sign the letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo ( https://bit.ly/3uIbFI7). We call for Secretary Raimondo’s immediate action to

– End the 10 YEARS OF INJUSTICE for hydrologist Xiafen “Sherry” Chen, and

– Account for the abuse and misconduct at multiple levels of the Department of Commerce stemming from the rogue “Investigations and Threat Management Service” (ITMS).

Deadline to co-sign: 04/04/2022, 11:59 pm Eastern Time.

Specifically, we request the Commerce Department to:

(1) Provide immediate relief to Ms. Chen in the form of an apology, appropriate compensation for the harms Ms. Chen has suffered over the past 10 years, rescinding the decision to remove Ms. Chen, and withdrawing the Department’s appeal of the ruling in Ms. Chen’s favor by the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB).

(2) Publicly adopt policy changes that will prevent profiling and unjustifiable scrutiny of Asian American employees at the Department going forward, including under the guise of “insider threat” investigations.

(3) Publish a full accounting of the abuses and misconduct at ITMS and the role of any other components or agencies in enabling or failing to stop that misconduct, including the Department’s Office of the Inspector General.

(4) Strengthen protections for whistleblowers, reverse any retaliation against those who reported ITMS’s abuses, and publicly commend their courage in coming forward.
