Thank you for your support!
Dear friends, the hearing continued this morning at a DOC facility in Cincinnati that has a video conference equipment. I and two of my coworkers provided our testimonies. Things went well today. Now all witnesses for the case have testified. The judge ordered both sides to submit a brief statement three weeks after receiving court transcripts. My lawyer and I will make sure this is done properly. Thank you so much again for being patient and traveling on this journey with me. - Sherry 3/28/2017

Sherry Chen is a proud American citizen and believes in the American dream as many hard working immigrants do. Her work helped save lives and made this country better, but was fired based on unfounded accusations. Please click the picture below to support her. #jusice4sherrychen
Sr. Patrick was an immigrant just as Sherry Chen. So true.
Who is not an immigrant in this country?
A reminder from the Irish Prime Minister - St. Patrick was an immigrant too.
Message from Ms. Sherry Chen to supporters:
"Dear friends, I am back home from the court hearing and waiting for continuing exam of me as a witness on Friday as the hearing didn’t finish in two days scheduled.
What a whirlwind experience the last two days have been! I felt that I am still in motion watching development of the case. It will be an unforgettable event for me being in a court room the first time in my life to fight for equal treatment and justice. But I am ...so glad that I was not alone on this journey as so many people inside and outside the court room were with me. The courtroom was filled with our community people who dressed formally, listened carefully and acted professionally. I can’t be more proud our people. The temperature of last two days was very cold below or around freezing for the high with strong wind. I can’t image how people outside the courtroom carried out the rally for hours. Many of them from other states and even didn’t have heavy cloth on. When I came out from the building during the lunch break with my lawyer and surrounded by them, I tried very hard to hold back my tears while shaking their cold hands and listening to them warm words from their hearts!!! Not only I was deeply moved by such nice people in our community, so did my lawyer. You are all my heroes!!! You made me and my lawyer reached our best performance possible during the two days hearing.
I would like to express my great appreciation to our local organizations for planning and organizing the event to support me and the fight for equal treatment, especially the board members of OCAA who have spent tremendous amount of time and effort to make it an extremely successful event! I like to thank all of our great friends all the way came to Cincinnati from other states to joint us to participate the event in person!!! Our local hosts are so great that everyone had a great time and experience here in Ohio. Love you all, "
Former federal prosecutor Peter J. Toren commented:
“They came across a person of Chinese descent and a little bit of evidence that they may have been trying to benefit the Chinese government, but it’s clear there was a little bit of Red Scare and racism involved.”
But with a tarnished reputation and a job so wrongfully taken away, Chen lives with the ordeal’s effects to this date. Witnessing her ongoing battle, the Committee of 100 said in a statement:...
“In the time-honored American tradition of standing up and speaking out against injustice and discrimination, Ms. Chen is fighting for her equal rights to be treated fairly and justly. Ms. Chen hopes only to be restored to her job, which she loves. The people of Ohio and America ought not to be deprived of the services and contributions of an intelligent, hardworking, and loyal American.”

Racial profiling shakes the foundation of this country. No one in this country should be discriminated because of their race.

“Ms. Sherry Chen is a loyal American citizen, an award-winning scientist that dedicated her life to the good of the country. The government’s knee-jerk reaction to false accusations against Ms. Chen sent the wrong message to the American people and has demoralized other hard working federal employees at National Weather Service that serve the country every day,” said Vincent Wang, Chairman of the Board, Ohio Chinese American Association and co-organizer of the rallies.
After a long hard working day in the court (9am to 6pm), Sherry Chen supporters and community leaders from all over the nation relaxed and enjoyed themselves at the Evening Social Party at Homewood Suite Hotel in Cincinnati on 3/14/2017.
