Tribunals and conferences, such as the Whistleblower Week in Washington, that search into the soul of our body politic are not one day affairs.
These events become etched into the fabric of history because of what those who participate in them do before they expose corruption and discrimination in our government and hospitals and what they do after they return home.
From the desk of Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy
Convenor, Whistleblowers Week in Washington 2008
Chairman, Board of Directors, the No FEAR Institute
It is our hope and expectation that those of us that have the courage to speak truth to power in our nationís capital and those of us who support the
courageous individuals that will testify and convene workshops during W3 Ė will make an indelible mark in history.
We are determined to make the 2nd anniversary of W3 and the 6th anniversary of the passage of the No FEAR Act (the first civil rights law of the 21st century) a moment in history, renowned for what this generation will have done to bring about changes to produce justice, equality and peace.
Be sure to contact your representatives and urge them to support critical legislation, such as the Congressional Disclosures Protection Act (HR 4650), the US Civil Rights Tax Relief Act (H.R.1540) Amendments to The Health Care Quality Improvement Act (HCQIA) of 1986 and No FEAR II.
