Whistleblowers’ Role in Promoting Science-Based Public Policy

WASHINGTON – The Government Accountability Project (GAP) invites you to join us for a teach-in at the March for Science on April 22, 2017. The teach-in, entitled ‘Whistleblowers: Speaking Up For Science,’ will help educate attendees about both the role whistleblowers play in protecting the public interest and promoting science-based public policy, and inform science professionals about their legal rights and strategies for disclosing evidence of serious wrongdoing.

A proud partner of the March for Science, GAP recognizes the crucial role science whistleblowers play in upholding scientific integrity. GAP’s longstanding public and legal support for hundreds of science professionals and whistleblowers who have spoken out about censorship, environmental dangers and public health threats has encouraged wide-spread support for whistleblowers and their disclosures as a powerful way to reinforce the value of truth and truth-telling. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, efforts to promote and defend science—and scientists—in their vital role in promoting policies and practices that govern our health, safety, environment and economic security could not be timelier.

Please join us at the teach-in and show your support for whistleblowers by sharing with us on social media using the hashtag #teamtruth, and enter a written testimonial about your experience as a science whistleblower or why you  support these brave truth-tellers!
