National Whistleblower Day 2021 will be the largest whistleblower event ever and will include speeches and programming by whistleblowers, lawmakers, agency heads, and advocates.
WASHINGTON, D.C. | June 17, 2021— Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) is confirmed to speak at the all-day National Whistleblower Day 2021 event hosted by the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) on July 30th, 2021. She will address the National Whistleblower Day celebration in a video presentation alongside other policymakers, whistleblower experts, whistleblowers, and their advocates, including SEC Chair Gary Gensler and Senator Charles Grassley.
Rep. Speier, a tireless whistleblower advocate and co-chair of the House Whistleblower Protection Caucus, championed such whistleblower protection legislation as the COVID-19 Whistleblower Protection Act, which was introduced February 4th, 2021 to protect whistleblowers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rep. Speier has sponsored multiple resolutions over the years to express Congressional support for the designation of July 30th as “National Whistleblower Appreciation Day.”
NWC Executive Director Siri Nelson said, “We are so excited to have Representative Speier speak at the event celebrating whistleblowers and their accomplishments with us. Speier’s efforts to strengthen whistleblower protection laws and stand up for whistleblowers showcase the tenacity required to be a true whistleblower defender in Congress. I am thrilled she will be joining us for our largest National Whistleblower Day celebration to date.”
In her 2019 video address, Rep. Speier spoke powerfully, discussing her work in Congress advocating on behalf of whistleblowers and why whistleblower protections are critically needed.
