International Leader in Whistleblower Protection
Government Accountability Project, a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the international leader in whistleblower protection — from advocacy to litigation. Our mission is to promote corporate and government accountability by protecting whistleblowers, advancing occupational free speech, and empowering citizen activists.
We empower whistleblowers to hold the powerful accountable and advocate for change. Through a combination of legislative initiatives, litigation, investigation, and educational outreach, we make sure whistleblowers are heard, protected, and that the truth they expose matters.
Founded in 1977, our longstanding work with more than 8,000 whistleblowers has involved working for decades in the areas of public health, food safety, national security, human rights, immigration, energy and the environment, finance and banking, and international institutions, as well as expanding whistleblower protections domestically and internationally. Time after time, we stood by the whistleblowers who put their lives and livelihoods on the line in order to serve the greater good.
We now turn our experience and expertise to protecting democracy from further corruption and abuse of power through the Democracy Protection Initiative.
