#GivingTuesday is here, and so is the start of the National Whistleblower Center’s end-of-year fundraising campaign.
2019 has been a big year for NWC. We’ve scored some key wins this year like exposing Facebook’s autogenerated terror and hate content, passing the Taxpayer First Act, preventing an SEC rollback of protections and rewardsfor securities fraud whistleblowers,and introducing key legislation like the Wildlife Conservation and Anti-Trafficking Actand Whistleblower Programs Improvement Act, to name a few.
But we still have a long way to go to make sure that whistleblowers have the protections and incentives they deserve. Whistleblower rights are under attack from all sides – big business, agencies, the courts, even the President.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing more about our major 2019 successes and what we’re hoping to accomplish in 2020.
We have big goals for the next year. We want to continue advocating for increased protections and incentives for all whistleblowers, take on new industries, and keep educating the public on the critical role whistleblowers play in preserving democracy. And critically, we want to keep providing legal assistance for the whistleblowers we all depend on. But we need your help.
So, please join us today on #GivingTuesday and lend your support to the fight against fraud, corruption, and more. Together with whistleblowers and supporters like you, we can take on wrongdoing across sectors and make a difference.
