Clemency for Kimberly Rivera
Dear President Obama,
Conscientious objector Kimberley Rivera has just given birth to a baby. Even after 495 letters from around the world, Fort Carson Senior Commander Brigadier General Michael A. Bills denied requests for clemency for Kimberly.
If you do not intervene, she will be forced to immediately relinquish custody of her son while she continues to serve the remainder of her sentence.
Kimberly Rivera was sentenced to 14 months in military prison after publicly expressing her conscientious objection to the Iraq War while in Canada.
