The National Whistleblower Center believes it is important to change the culture of retaliation that often results in destroying whistleblowers’ careers. We need your help in establishing July 30th as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day.
Over the last few years the National Whistleblower Center has worked to build bipartisan support for the issue of whistleblower protection. On February 25, 2015, Senator Chuck Grassley announced the formation of the Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus; a bipartisan coalition of Senators that will work to ensure whistleblowers in all sectors obtain meaningful protections.
We feel that the formation of the Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus has created a momentum to support whistleblowers and push for July 30th to be recognized as a permanent day honoring whistleblowers.
The National Whistleblower Center approached Senator Charles Grassley in 2013 and asked for his help in establishing July 30th as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day. He was successful in getting the resolution passed by unanimous vote.
Senator Ron Wyden, who is the Vice-Chair of the Senate Whistleblower Protection Caucus, joined Grassley in his efforts to pass the resolution again in 2014.
Please join the National Whistleblower Center in urging Congress to make July 30th National Whistleblower Appreciation Day.
