Working with Whistleblowers: 
A Guide for Public Interest Organizations


Whistleblowers—employees who discover and expose serious wrongdoing—are vital for public interest organizations fighting to advance social, economic and environmental justice. Information provided by whistleblowers, when used effectively, has tremendous power to hold institutions and leaders accountable.
