|Join our National Campaign for Whistleblower Reforms!|
*** America Supports Whistleblowers, and we have the numbers to prove it!
Dear Friend, For over twenty years we have been advocating for whistleblower protections. We have always known that employees who expose waste, fraud and corruption need out help – and we have known that that laws protecting those employees were weak or even non-existent. Now, for the FIRST TIME EVER, a major national polling firm has found the overwhelming majority of “likely voters” share our views, and are demanding that Congress enact a strong national whistleblower protection law. The results of this poll were clear: whistleblower protection is at the top of the public’s agenda. It is up to us to make sure it is at the top of Congress’ agenda. This is the time to Take Action! We need your help! In order to mobilize and demonstrate this public support, the National Whistleblower Center has initiated a nation-wide petition drive. Our goal is simple: Get support in every Congressional district, and persuade every Member of Congress to get out in front of this issue, and make sure that a comprehensive whistleblower protection law is passed this year. 1014 “likely voters” were polled between February 14-19, 2007, and 79% of likely voters believe that Congress should “institute a strong whistleblower law to protect government employees from retribution if they report waste or corruption.” Moreover, 41% of “likely voters” believe that whistleblower protection is among the most vital issues facing Congress today, with 41% of those surveyed stating that they would be “much more likely” to support a Congress that enacts strong whistleblower protections. This polling data will significantly strengthen the movement to get Congress to act. For the first time we are in a position to demonstrate that the public stands behind whistleblowers. For the first time we can document – with objective data – that the American people insist that Congress finally enact an effective and comprehensive national whistleblower protection law. Lets build on this momentum! Please sign the petition online by clicking here. Please pass the petition on to other supporters, and link to it from your websites.
Let’s get the job done! Stephen M. Kohn Executive Director, National Whistleblower Center www.whistleblowers.org
