 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC 20510


Dear Senator:


The USDA Coalition of Minority Employees will co-host this year's Whistleblower, Civil & Human Rights Conference/Summit, in Washington, DC.  As you know The Coalition has been very active at the US Department of Agriculture since 1994, regarding their continued widespread racism, sexism, reprisal, intimidation, sexual assault, hostile work environment, and other abuses against USDA employees and minority farmers.


Over the last six years members from the Make it Safe Coalition (MISC) have arranged an assembly of whistleblowers in Washington, DC each year for an annual conference originally known as Washington Whistleblower's Week. As usual the MISC and the media are always invited, but we are proud to announce that MSNBC Host Dylan Ratigan has agreed to participate and the PACIFICA Foundation has committed to broadcast the historic event this year.


We would like for Senator  to reserve a meeting room at the Capitol Hill Visitor's Building for us on Monday—May 21, 2012 for our Plenary Session and Whistleblower Panel Discussion and Tuesday May 22, between 11:00 AM-6:00 PM. There will be a civil rights round table in the afternoon on Tuesday. We are a gathering of credible civil & human rights groups, whistleblowers and public interest advocates. Featured speakers       will be some of the following:


Tom Devine, Legal Director

Government Accountability Project


Stephen Kohn,   President

National Whistleblower Center


Kent Burns, Director of Communications

Taxpayers Against Fraud


Lawrence Lucas, President

USDA Coalition of Minority Employees


Arlene Englehart, Executive Director

Marcel Reid, Board of Directors

Pacifica Foundation


Reverend Walter Fauntroy, Founder

Thank you in advance for your consideration and assistance in this matter. We are looking forward to a very exciting and successful conference/summit.
