National Whistleblower Day celebrates the contributions of all whistleblowers.

Recently, the National Whistleblower Center published a post on its Facebook page about the Senate’s Proclamation of July 30th, 2016 as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day. This post has received tremendous response with over 2,300 likes, 521 shares and over 300 comments. Much of the response was supportive, but others question the sincerity of celebrating July 30th as National Whistleblower Day given how badly national security whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning have been treated.

Washington, D.C.  November 24, 2014. The National Whistleblower Center is participating in the third annual #GivingTuesday.  #GivingTuesday is a collaborative effort to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday aims to inspire people to take action to give back in better, smarter ways to the causes they support and help create a better world.

Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

The National Whistleblower Center, the nation’s leading whistleblower protection and advocacy organization, has a more than 20 year history of protecting the rights of individuals to speak out about wrongdoing in the workplace without fear of retaliation. The National Whistleblower Center has joined with the #GivingTuesday movement to collaborate with the more than 10,000 organizations in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.
