HISTORY OF NWD
"A resolution designating July 30, 2019 as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day." Resolution passed with unanimous consent.
"Resolved, that is the duty of all persons of the United States, as well as all other inhabitants thereof, to give the earliest information to Congress or any other proper authority of any misconduct, frauds, or misdemeanors commit by any persons in the service of the states, which may come to their knowledge."
WHISTLEBLOWING AND THE AMERICAN DREAM
"One thing is certain: The roots of whistleblowing can be found deep within the American Dream. They are not based on wealth or opportunity, but on service and a Democratic Ideal that can be traced directly back to the earliest days of the American Republic and the very first whistleblowers in the newly independent United States."
THE MESSAGE BEHIND NATIONAL WHISTLEBLOWER DAY
"The history behind this resolution is remarkable. It marks one of the first real tests of American democracy and how those in power would treat whistleblowers who exposed wrongdoing within the revolutionary government itself."
