Whistleblowers, Advocates and Government Officials to Celebrate National Whistleblower Day on Capitol Hill

On July 30, National Whistleblower Center (NWC) is hosting a National Whistleblower Day event on Capitol Hill to celebrate the bravery and sacrifices of whistleblowers and their contributions to rooting out fraud, abuses and corruption. The event will feature remarks from U.S. Senators, government officials, whistleblower advocates and whistleblowers themselves.

The details of this year’s event are still to be announced.

Each year since 2013, the U.S. Senate has unanimously passed a resolution designating July 30 as National Whistleblower Day. The date commemorates the first whistleblower law in the history of the United States which was passed on July 30, 1778. In recent years, a growing number of federal agencies have celebrated National Whistleblower Day by informing employees of their whistleblower rights and by highlighting the critical role whistleblowers play in exposing fraud, corruption, and abuse of power.

WNN’s Jane Turner will be speaking at the National Whistleblower Day event. In past years, speakers have included whistleblowers such as Sherron Watkins and Linda Tripp as well as government officials like SEC Chair Gary Gensler and Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh.
