Support Accountability and Transparency in Government

Uncle Sam covering his ears, eyes, and mouth with his hands

Tell Congress: Protect Whistleblowers and Taxpayers!

When scientific research is altered or suppressed, when government contractors waste millions of taxpayer dollars, or when national security documents are falsified, witnesses need to know that they can blow the whistle without threatening their careers.

We are closer than ever to ending retaliation against those who speak up to protect us!

President Obama has often said transparency and accountability are priorities for his administration. As President-elect, he made this promise:

“Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to the courts and due process.”

The legislation that will make Obama’s campaign promise law is the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2009 (H.R. 1507/S. 372).

Help federal employees uphold the public trust! Use the sample message below to tell your members of Congress that you support the strongest possible protections for federal employees who keep the government transparent and accountable.
