Dr. Natalie May Edwards was a senior adviser at the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, when she saw corruption at the highest levels. She bravely blew the whistle and provided information that exposed how the global banking system enabled and profited from criminals, prompting worldwide inquiries. As a result, a cascade of successful anti-laundering legislation in the US, the EU, and other countries around the world took place. Dr. Edwards bravery has cost her thousands of dollars in legal fees, medical costs and the loss of her house and car. She received a sentence for leaking a FinCEN document and will report to jail in August of 2021. This brave whistleblower and her family need our help.
If you wish to help get Dr. May Edwards' story out into the media, there is a change.org petition asking President Biden for her pardon.
