Support Frances Haugen, Facebook's Whistleblower

On the October 3rd broadcast of 60 Minutes, Frances Haugen made the decision to share her identity and explain why she made the courageous choice to to stand up to a trillion dollar company and blow the whistle on what she saw at Facebook.

Frances spoke about what motivated her and why she’s so committed to making sure Congress—and government leaders around the world— finally have a clear picture of the choices being made inside Facebook that, to her, led to dangerous, even deadly, outcomes.  

We’re proud of her decision to go public—just as we’re proud of the integrity she’s displayed throughout the long process of sharing her concerns with regulators through mechanisms provided by law.

Now we need your support to make sure she’s got the backup she needs as she stands up to speak the truth.

With almost 3 billion users worldwide, Facebook is among the most powerful corporations in the world.
 
But new revelations laid out in a set of disclosures to the SEC seem to demonstrate that Facebook has repeatedly chosen to put profits and growth ahead of health and safety, creating toxic social media environments for teen girls, granting celebrities and politicians permission to bypass standard vetting, and more.
 
Thanks to that information--proof that Facebook was behaving irresponsibly and even possibly illegally--there’s a renewed movement to hold Facebook accountable for its actions and enact regulations that can keep all of us safe.
 
Those disclosures, detailed in the Wall Street Journal's "Facebook Files" reports, and the storm of media coverage they’ve unleashed, didn’t just happen. They’re the result of a brave decision by a single individual to speak up about what they saw at Facebook by working with Whistleblower Aid to raise the alarm safely and legally.
 
Speaking out takes courage, especially when the target of one's criticisms is a company with limitless resources and an army of lawyers. That’s why it’s so critical that Whistleblower Aid does everything we can to make sure the Facebook whistleblower has every protection the law allows. It’s likely that you know someone who’s been harmed by these actions and lack of actions. Maybe you have personally experienced cyber-bullying harassment or received critical misinformation through their platform. This whistleblower represents each and every one of us using Facebook.
 
At this moment, the individual behind these groundbreaking SEC disclosures has chosen to remain anonymous. But that doesn’t make the stakes any lower.
