As the nation’s leading whistleblower protection and advocacy organization, GAP accepts clients from across the country who raise concerns that affect the public interest. While the breadth of topics that we handle has no limits, over the past 30-plus years, many high-profile cases featuring GAP clients have led the organization to develop program areas which demand GAP’s constant attention.
These various focuses allow GAP to effectively monitor key government agencies, certain types of corporations, and select international institutions on an ongoing basis. Again, however, the clients that GAP accepts often fall outside of these boundaries.
Our current program areas include:
Corporate & Financial Accountability: Making recommendations to corporations, and watching national & international financial institutions
Environment: Monitoring the use of climate science data, environmental agencies, and nuclear facilities
Food Integrity: Conducting the Food Integrity Campaign to spur the strengthening of the current American food system
Government Employees: Covering federal employees, DC Government employees and others
National Security & Human Rights: Monitoring government actions regarding disaster accountability, politically-motivated discrimination, surveillance, secrecy & transparency, and torture
International: Watchdogging the World Bank, regional development banks, International Monetary Fund, and United Nations
Legislation: Watching current legislation and advocating for better whistleblower protections
Litigation: Covers a wide range of cases before administrative agencies and courts in a variety of jurisdictions.
