Senate Unanimously Passes Resolution Declaring July 30th National Whistleblower Appreciation Day

The resolution was introduced by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and cosponsored by all members of the bipartisan Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus.

The idea for National Whistleblower Day was first sparked by the re-discovery of America’s first whistleblower law, enacted on July 30, 1778. The rediscovery was based on original historical research published in The Whistleblower’s Handbook, written by Stephen M. Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblower Center.

The National Whistleblower Center issued an alert to Urge federal agencies to recognize National Whistleblower Day!
