To further encourage brave individuals to stand together to achieve human rights for all, Acorn8 will convene the 8th Annual Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival. The theme for this year's conference is True North Persevering in the Pursuit of Justice.

All whistleblowers as well as the entire civil-rights community are invited to attend the "free" conference. The gathering will take place from July 25, 2019, thru August 1, 2019, in Washington, DC.

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 the 2019 Summit on Capitol Hill.

Tom Devine of the Government Accountability Project (GAP), Stephen Kohn of the National Whistleblower Center, Deidre Gilbert of the National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association, and Tanya Ward Jordan, Author of 17 Steps: A Federal Employee's Guide For Tackling Workplace Discrimination and President of C4C, will join the whistleblowers' assembly.

"Whistleblowing is something that should be celebrated," says Marcel Reid, who became the first whistleblower liaison in major media. She now organizes the annual event with Michael McCray, Esq, author of RACE, POWER & POLITICS--the Inside Story of ACORN.

"The upcoming summit will feature panels as well as films that shine a light on courageous stories of perseverance in the face of injustice," says McCray, who became a federal whistleblower while working in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
