Whistleblower Summit
 Civil And Human Rights

(July 27-29, 2016)


Attention:  C4C Members

Over the last nine years members from the Make it Safe Coalition (MISC) have arranged an assembly of whistleblowers in Washington, DC for an annual conference originally known as Washington Whistleblower's Week.  All whistleblowers and their advocates, as well as the entire civil rights community are invited to participate in this FREE event.

Host committee members—ACORN 8,  The Coalition For Change, Inc.  (C4C), Project Censored, Justice Integrity Project and Federally Employed Women Legal Education Fund (FEW-LEF), will co-host this year's Whistle Blower Summit for Civil & Human Rights on Capitol Hill.

The theme for the annual conference this year is 1778—Whistleblowers and The First Amendment.

The C4C is thankful to lead event organizers -- Mr. Michael McCray and Ms. Marcel Reid -- who have again invited the C4C to lead a panel discussion.  The C4C panel, entitled Addressing Race Discrimination and Reprisal  In the Federal Government,  will convene on Friday - July 29, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.  The C4C panelists will discuss initiatives the Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C)  has recommended to the EEOC, the Congress and other advocacy groups to improve the toxic Federal workplace culture.  The C4C panelists will also discuss strategies to address the adverse health impact of race discrimination and reprisal.

 The C4C panel will precede the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission panel which will take place the same day.  Notably,  Mr. Carlton Hadden - EEOC's Director of Federal Operations will be a presenter in the EEOC panel.   (See location and event description below.)

EEOC—Whistleblower Disclosures And Management Retaliation


Moderated by Gloria Minott, Public Affairs Director WPFW—Over the past decade, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has reported that retaliation is the most common issue alleged by federal employees and the most common discrimination finding in federal sector cases. Nearly half of all complaints filed during fiscal year (FY) 2013 were retaliation complaints, with 42 percent of findings of discrimination based on retaliation. In fact, retaliation has been the most frequently alleged basis of discrimination in the federal sector since fiscal year 2008. In addition, the number of discrimination findings based on a retaliation claim has outpaced other bases of discrimination. This panel will discuss a EEOC Whitepaper on Retaliation, a research study on Whistleblower Disclosures and Management Retaliation and the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case of Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railroad vs White

Potential panelists include –

  • Carlton Hadden, Director Office of Federal Operations 
  • Patricia St. Clair, EEOC Office of Federal Operations 
  • Joyce Rothschild, Virginia Technical University
  • Michael McCray, FEW-LEF
