In the interview, NWC’s Siri Nelson said, “We have whistleblowers to thank for our democracy and our freedoms – that’s their legacy. They protect everything we care about…They are the ones who believe in the values that we all agree with, they are the ones who are looking out for wrongdoing and making sure people are following the rules that we all agree with. Without them, there are so many things we would not know about.”
