LET'S STAND UP WITH REALITY LEIGH WINNER AND HER FAMILY!

Reality Leigh Winner was arrested on June 3, 2017 and awaits trial for 1 charge under the Espionage Act for allegedly leaking a document detailing Russian election interference.  She remains in jail in GA.  Her mother has retired from her work with Texas Child Protective Services in order to relocate to GA and to support and advocate for Reality.  The family is faced with the costs of 2 households, travel, advocating, and ensuring Reality has funds available to her while incarcerated.

It is a Difficult time for Reality Winner and her family. Please show your love and support with kind messages and a monetary donation if you feel led to do so.

These funds will be able to assist with loss of wages,  travel costs, costs to maintain Reality’s home in GA, and costs of advocating for her.   

PLEASE STAND WITH REALITY LEIGH WINNER & HER FAMILY AND LET THEM KNOW THEY HAVE OUR SUPPORT!

**THIS IS THE ONLY CAMPAIGN AND FUNDRAISING PLATFORM TO SUPPORT REALITY WINNER AND HER FAMILY and IS SEPARATE FROM ANY PLATFORMS FOR LEGAL DEFENSE COSTS.

Hello all,
in case you have not yet heard, a sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Thursday August 23, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.. This will be held at the Federal Justice Center, 600 James Brown Blvd., Augusta GA.
Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported Reality and our family. We are so very grateful!
The funds have been used to ensure that all of Reality's needs are met. Because of you and your generosity, we have been able to hire a specialized psychologist to complete a full evaluation and ongoing therapy with Reality. This has helped her a great deal. We have also been able to travel to GA to visit with her, attend meetings, adn court hearings. We have maintained her home in GA, as it is much more economical to stay there than in hotels. With Reality's blessing, we have allowed a young woman and her son to also stay at the house, as our way of helping and "paying it forward". She needed a stable home for her and her son and this is helping her to save up to get a apartment of her own.
Reality remains strong because of all of the support and love she is shown! We cannot thank everyone enough for this!
Sincerely,
Billie and Gary

On 6/26/17 Reality changed her plea in court. She admitted to releasing the classified document and accepted full responsibility. She bravely read a statement to the court, indicating that she was aware that she was unauthorized to release this information and knew that this was wrong. She and her legal defense team agreed to a plea agreement with the DOJ, and if accepted by the Judge, will mean a 5 year prison term and a 3 year supervised release, plus other restrictions and conditions. This sentence, along with the pre-trial incarceration is unprecedented for a case like this. The Espionage Act charge and the court's rulings against Reality made it impossible for her and her team to defend her from this charge.
We are waiting now for the official sentencing by the court, and to find out where Reality will be sent for her sentence. We continue to travel to and from GA and are still so very grateful for everyone who contributes to make this possible.
Going forward, Reality will still need your support. Please write her and keep her name out there so that she is not forgotten. While 5 years does not sound like a long prison sentence, to this young woman, it will be during what should be the best times of her life. She deserves our continued love and support during this period and I hope that everyone will continue to show that they believe in her and her "crime".

Hello all,
Thanks to all for your support and donations, I have been able to travel back up to Georgia to visit with Reality. She remains strong and she is strengthened by all of your support and love. Please remember to write to her as well!

I have also been able to meet a young woman, Mikaela Uscanga, who was actually incarcerated with Reality for a while in Lincoln County Jail. Her love for Reality is amazing - she has begun advocating and campaigning on behalf of our daughter! Follow her on Twitter @KayKay_2K or look her up on FB -- she tells it like it is and has a powerful voice and perspective.

Again, thanks to all for supporting Reality and our family!
Much love to everyone -- #Justice4Reality

In just the short time that our campaign has been reactivated, there have been ongoing donations coming in daily. We honestly can never thank you all enough for your generosity.
Reality remains incarcerated in Lincoln Co. Jail in Lincolnton, GA. If you have not yet written to her, please consider doing so at PO BOX 970 Lincolnton,GA 30817. All mail in and out is scanned and reviewed, but this really keeps her going.
I have posted her very latest sketch below and may be printing this one on canvas to sell, so please watch out for it. She is such a talented artist.
Thanks to all who believe in Reality and are helping us through this battle. It's so much easier knowing you all are with us!
Love to all,
Billie and Gary
