National Whistleblower Day

National Whistleblower Day

Living in a country that has a fair law system is part of living in one. It is important to ensure that misconduct and corruption are not ignored. National Whistleblower Day was created to celebrate and honor those who have spoken out!

Whistleblower Day, which is annually celebrated on July 30, is an anniversary of America’s first Whistleblower Law. This law was adopted by the Continental Congress during the American Revolution in 1778.

2013 was a unanimous vote in the United States Senate to establish National Whistleblower Appreciation day, which celebrates the courage of those who have fought for American democracy and rule of law.

The National Whistleblower Center, (NWC), was established in 1988. It is an educational and advocacy non-profit organization with a Washington DC headquarters. The NWC began hosting an annual celebration on Capitol Hill in 2015 to commemorate and honor whistleblowers.

Today, political leaders and politicians from both parties of politics will set aside their agendas and celebrate freedom in a country that encourages whistleblowers to speak the truth.

Participants can be proud to observe National Whistleblower Day. These are some ideas to celebrate the day.

This non-profit organization is a vital advocate and educator on issues related to government corruption and misconduct. They help to expose corruption and wrongdoing and assist in prosecuting it, not just in the United States but all over the globe.

The United States Senate has been recognising the day every year since 2013, but the federal government has yet to make the commitment. Many citizens are asking the United States Congress to make National Whistleblowers Day permanent.

To learn more or to send an email to your representatives, visit the National Whistleblowers Center site.

Every citizen has the right to be educated on the importance whistleblowing. You can find information in a variety of books and journals. The website of the National Whistleblower Center in Washington, DC is a good place to begin. You can even access some of the programming from previous years’ celebrations on the website.

Advocates, attorneys, government workers, and educators can all help to raise awareness and advocate for the day in their communities. Invite guest speakers to educate and understand about the bipartisan idea whistleblowing.

Perhaps you can break up the groups into smaller groups and have round-table discussions about this topic after the talks. Participants can share their ideas and brainstorm ways to keep whistleblowing safe and respected within government.
