National Whistleblower Day History

The U.S. Continental Congress passed America’s first whistleblower law during the height of the American Revolution on July 30th, 1778. To honor this history, the first Congressional celebration of National Whistleblower Day took place in the U.S. Senate Kennedy Caucus Room on July 30th, 2015. It was a huge success! Since then, the National Whistleblower Center has continued its whistleblower celebration by holding an annual event with this year’s event taking place as an interactive virtual conference.

“That it is the duty of all persons in the service of the United States, as well as all other inhabitants thereof, to give the earliest information of wrongdoing to Congress or other proper authority of any misconduct, frauds or misdemeanors committed by any officers or persons in the service of these states, which may come to their knowledge.” – First U.S. whistleblower law, unanimously passed on July 30, 1778 by the Continental Congress
