Top Advocacy Organizations Partner to Represent Whistleblowers and Protect the Election

Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection Executive Director Joshua Geltzer commented:

“The importance of whistleblowers who make use of legal avenues to call attention to government wrongdoing is longstanding in our country’s history and has become even clearer in recent years. ICAP has been proud to stand up for whistleblowers who are, themselves, standing up for the rule of law; and we are proud to join this new partnership to represent whistleblowers and protect the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Protect Democracy Counsel John Langford commented:

“A well-functioning democracy requires the government to be held accountable not just on Election Day, but every day. Civil servants play a key role in monitoring the government and exposing misconduct, corruption, and abuses of power. That’s why it’s critical for civil servants to know their rights and feel secure in coming forward with information that benefits the American people. Those who put themselves at risk to protect our democracy must themselves be protected.”

Public Citizen President Robert Weissman commented:

“Never has the need for truth-telling been so evident or essential in the fight to protect our democracy. Since our founding nearly 50 years ago, Public Citizen has tirelessly championed for the rights of whistleblowers. We are pleased to partner with Government Accountability Project and other allies to double-down on these efforts and stand ready to protect the heroes who put everything on the line to expose corruption and wrongdoing that threaten our nation’s governance.”

We The Action President & Executive Director Sarah Baker commented:

“With Election Day less than a month away, we’re seeing unprecedented attacks on the security of the election and the legitimacy of the outcome. These attacks are dangerous, unamerican, and do fundamental damage to our shared democratic values. That’s why our community of more than 13,000 volunteer lawyers will be part of the first line of defense and supporting whistleblowers who come forward. The right to vote — and the integrity of the election itself — is under attack, and it’s more important than ever that every lawyer use their unique skills to defend the election and ensure that every vote counts.”
