Host of the Whistleblower of the Week Podcast
National Whistleblower Center
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.
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.
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 United States Senate officially passed a resolution designating July 30, 2022, 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.
