Happy Birthday Chelsea Manning

Donation protected
*Note: This is the official campaign raising funds for Chelsea Manning's living expenses. This campaign is being organized by a group of her friends. Funds raised here will go into a trust, where the money can only be used to pay living expenses. All funds will be held in trust for this purpose alone.*


Chelsea E. Manning is a network security and artificial intelligence expert, activist, gamer and Twitch streamer. She is a former military intelligence analyst and former political prisoner.

Chelsea was just released last March, in the wake of the pandemic, and although it has been challenging to find steady employment, she has been organizing and helping her community in every way she can.

She has been setting up her new life in Brooklyn, New York, doing some security consulting - and setting up her Twitch stream, where she plays games and teaches about AI, machine learning, the ethics of algorithms and other critical issues, such as prisoner support and setting up mutual aid networks.

It became evident these last few months that she is working with very limited resources and could use a little help from her friends. So we decided to organize this little fundraiser for her 33rd birthday (December 17, 2020) to make sure she has enough on hand to cover her basic living expenses.

Thanks so much for your support!
