2016 Whistleblower Summit



Over the last nine (9) 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.  Once more host organizers of ACORN 8, Ms. Marcel Reid and Mr. Michael McCray, Esq., invited the Coalition for Change (C4C), along with other groups to co-host the 2016 Whistle Blower Summit for Civil & Human Rights.  The theme for the annual conference, which took place on July 27-29, 2016 on Capitol Hill,  was 1778—Whistleblowers and The First Amendment. Attendees of the free seminar heard from subject matter experts covering a wide array of topic such as:  impact of stress on health, judicial misconduct, whistleblower legislative campaigns, and more.  For full list of topics and presenters see http://www.whistleblowersummit.com/
The C4C held a panel on Addressing Race Discrimination and Reprisal in the Federal Sector.  Panelists discussed race-based complaint trends in the Federal government since the Notification and Federal Employees Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002; the C4C formulated accountability and transparency measures as presented to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  (EEOC) to reform the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Program; the origin and status of HR 1557 -- the Federal Employee Anti-discrimination bill introduced by Rep. Elijah Cummings; and stress reduction strategies to help victims of Federal workplace discrimination improve their health and wellness.

Whistleblower Summit --  C4C Inquiry to the U.S. EEOC  (Pt 1)
President of the Coalition For Change, Inc., Tanya Ward Jordan, addresses the persistent state of race discrimination in the Federal government.   She notes how the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has confirmed that from Oct 1, 2005 -- June 26, 2015 Black Americans within the Federal government have filed 108 race based class actions.  However, the EEOC, "decided" that only six (6) out of the 108 class actions had merit.    C4C raises specific questions about the status of class actions at the Social Security Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Commerce and the Bureau of Prisons.  Questions were asked of the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations Director-Mr. Carlton Hadden, who also agreed to provide a "written reply" to the C4C's Federal Sector EEO Report of inquiry - no later than Sept. 30, 2016. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN0kNr3umTM
