Why are U.S. officials waiting to #BringBrittneyHome?

Brittney Griner is a Black, queer woman and one of top players in the WNBA and in the overseas professional basketball league for the last 9 years! She has been detained by the Russian government under suspicious pretenses without U.S. consular support!

News of Brittney’s detention began to circulate in U.S. media on March 5th, weeks after her detainment. The lack of transparency and communication from Russian authorities has caused experts on to call into doubt the allegations against Brittney.

To combat this injustice, BFF launched the #BringBrittneyHome campaign to raise awareness and amplify the call to urge U.S. officials.


Our Demands:

  • We demand the U.S. government prioritize the swift and safe release and return of Brittney Griner back to the United States - facing no charges.
  • We demand ongoing visible proof of Brittney Griner’s safety and wellbeing as well as consistent communication and wellness checks while in custody.
  • We demand Brittney Griner have access to the same benefits and protections as any other U.S. citizen, including but not limited to consistent U.S. consular access.
