NWC Sends Letter to Congressional Committees About IACC

WASHINGTON, D.C. | May 22nd, 2024 — Today, National Whistleblower Center sent out letters to numerous Congressional Committees discussing our plans to attend the 2024 International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) in June. NWC (National Whistleblower Center) is excited to announce that we will be sending a two-person delegate team to Vilnius, Lithuania for the conference.

NWC attends the IACC every two years. We attend IACC to advocate for the use and enforcement of transnational anticorruption and whistleblower laws, encouraging the international community to use U.S. policies to combat corruption. In previous years attending the IACC, we have has spoken in panels, networked with other whistleblower organizations, and hosted outside workshops.

This year, NWC’s team will be speaking on 2 panels. The first panel, “From Silence to Safety: Advancing Whistleblower Laws Part I.” On this panel, we will discuss some best practices for whistleblower laws that NWC advocates for. The second panel NWC is speaking at is “Anti-Corruption: The New Burden of Proof to Deep Sea Exploitation.” This panel will delve into anti-corruption efforts and global governance, particularly in the realm of deep-sea mining.

In addition to speaking on panels, Stephen Kohn, the founder and chairperson of NWC and partner at Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto will be hosting “Whistleblower Awards Go Global: How to Use Transnational Anti-Corruption Laws.” This invitation only event will include complimentary breakfast, free books, and a crucial conversation about transnational whistleblower laws.

National Whistleblower Center is open to connecting with Congressional Committees that may be in attendance before or during the conference.

NWC Executive Director Siri Nelson is available for comment. For more information, contact NWC at info@whistleblowers.org.
