Whistleblowers are urging President Biden to sign an executive order recognizing National Whistleblower Day.

Honor our History

Protecting whistleblowers is in our country’s DNA. The first whistleblower law was signed by the Continental Congress in 1778. Since then, whistleblowers have become a pillar of keeping our democracy healthy.

Change the Culture

We can only root out fraud, corruption, and waste by addressing the culture that silences those trying to speak the truth. This executive order will require the government to acknowledge the importance of increasing openness and transparency.

Demand Justice and Respect

Whistleblowers have sacrificed their careers, health, and safety while exposing waste and returning billions of dollars to the U.S. Government. It’s past time that they are recognized.

The Senate has asked the president to take action on this day every year since 2013. It is time to get the White House to act. Enforce the Senate resolutions that have designated July 30th as National Whistleblower Day.

2023 Senate Resolution

The United States Senate officially passed a resolution designating July 30, 2023, as “National Whistleblower Appreciation Day.” This action marks the eighth year Senate has called upon federal agencies to recognize whistleblowers for their contributions to “combating waste, fraud, abuse, and violations of laws and regulations of the United States.

Senator Charles Grassley

“With their words and actions, leaders have to make clear that whistleblowers are important and retaliation is not tolerated.”

– Chuck Grassley, United States Senator (R)

Leaders Speak and Recognize National Whistleblower Day

The History of The First Whistleblower Law

Renowned whistleblower attorney Stephen M. Kohn eloquently tells the story.

“Resolved, that it is the duty of all persons of the United States, as well as all other inhabitants thereof, to give the earliest information to Congress or any other proper authority of any misconduct, frauds, or misdemeanors committed by any persons in the service of these States, which may come to their knowledge.”

First U.S. whistleblower law, unanimously passed on July 30, 1778 by the Continental Congress
