Today at The Toyota Center, Houstonians, Family, Friends, & Dignitaries, gathered to show their support for "WNBA's " Britney Griner. The Houston native has been detained in Russia since February 17, for allegedly having hashish oil in her bag .
"We are completely in the dark as to the legal system that may exist in Russia. It is evident by the hostages that are still there," said Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
The Nimitz High School graduate has garnered worldwide support as the efforts to have her released remain ongoing. Griner's wife told Good Morning America that she wanted President Joe Biden to intervene and bring Griner back. Lebron James has also applied pressure to the Biden Administration.
I hope all of this works out! #FreeBritneyGriner
