Whistleblowers of America is being founded to provide peer support to whistleblowers and watchdogs who identify workplace wrongdoing and for veterans who seek justice. Donations will support the peer network and financial aid for legal and medical care assistance. There are an estimated 6 million employees in America who can identify wrongdoing, but only a fraction report it because of fears of retaliation. Those who do report are known to suffer years of emotional, physical, social, financial and legal hardships. They need peer support to guide them through a complex investigative and legal process that can take years for justice to prevail while they suffer the effects of retaliation. If whistleblowers succumb to the bullying and harrassment to end their case, become financially insolvent, ill or die by suicide, then the public is left exposed to waste, fraud, and abuse that impacts our environment, food supply, medical care, and safety. Lives are lost each year because wrongdoing goes unreported. Americans need a better network to support whistleblowers' resolve and resilience. Funds are needed now to help build the peer support network and start a grant process.
