临门一脚,助陈霞芬获得公道 (附:联署社团名单、新闻发布会视频)


5月23日在国会的新闻发布会,陈霞芬获全美132个团体、31位国会议员的支持,十几家媒体报道。全美瞩目,气势如虹,直指商务部。凯歌似乎已响起,全国亚裔一片欢腾,大家觉得似乎可以松一口气了。


真的是在这样吗?其实不然。MSPB法官历时13个月,作了充分、翔实的审理、论证,裁定陈霞芬胜诉,认为她是商务部多个级别的官员“严重的不公正行为的受害者”,要求商务部恢复陈霞芬的工作,并且补发工资福利。然而,商务部掩耳盗铃,意欲施展拖延战术,放出风来要对联邦考绩委员会(U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, MSPB)的决定上诉,意图让陈案久拖不决,拖到陈霞芬和全美上下的亚裔父老乡亲失去注意力、失去凝聚力、失去信心,最后不了了之,其用心之险恶昭然若揭。


关心陈霞芬朋友们纷纷问,接下来的棋怎么走?如何帮忙?


目前,我们已经把由全美132个团体签名联署给商务部部长Wilbur Ross的信发出,敦促他 服从MSPB的决定,恢复陈霞芬的工作,补发所有的工资福利。国会亚太裔议员团31名议员也于5月23日致信商务部总督察长,要求对陈霞芬案进行全面彻底的调查。 


我们虽然已经打赢了一场战斗,但是陈霞芬还处于失业状态,还没有回到工作岗位,还没有取得她应得到的公平正义。为了最后的胜利,陈霞芬仍然需要我们和她一道继续努力,与强大的政府抗争。帮助陈霞芬,就是帮助我们自己。


现在,请您继续支持陈霞芬,花一分钟写信给商务部部长Wilbur Ross,叫他服从联邦考绩委员会的决定,让陈霞芬回到自己的工作岗位。商务部部长Wilbur Ross的电子邮件是 WLRoss@doc.gov。下面是一封样信,供您参考 —- 复制、粘帖、发送,应该用不了一分钟。


另外,您也可以向陈霞芬法律维权基金会捐款。谢谢您的大力支持!


支持陈霞芬,就是支持我们自己。

给商务部部长的样信


Subject: Recent MSPB decision about Sherry Chen


Dear Secretary Ross,


I write to express my deep concerns about the multiple-level DOC problems identified by the recent MSPB decision (https://www.sherrychendefensefund.org/mspb-decision.html) that reinstated Sherry Chen to her position in the National Weather Service with back pay and benefits. 


On May 23, a press conference was held on Capitol Hill where 132 organizations called for you and DOC to comply with the MSPB decision (https://www.sherrychendefensefund.org/uploads/9/9/2/8/99280080/final_community_sign_on-letter_to_doc_sec_ross.pdf).  Thirty one members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus also requested a full and independent investigation by the Inspector General to look into the mishandling of Sherry Chen’s case at multiple levels in DOC (https://www.sherrychendefensefund.org/uploads/9/9/2/8/99280080/2018-05-23_capac_letter_to_commerce_ig_final.pdf).


I write to support these calls for your action.  Sherry Chen has been proven twice over the last 6 years that she is an innocent Chinese American scientist whose award-winning work was to save American lives and properties with river forecast models.  As Commerce Secretary, you are in position to correct the identified problems created under the previous administration, hold responsible parties accountable, and ensure that there will be no future recurrences of wrongful Sherry Chen cases.  


I look forward to your reply and thank you for your attention and action.
