Beyond Snowden: New Group to Clear a Path for More Whistleblowers

Coalition for Grassroots Progress

Investigative journalists, bloggers and advocates and former-whistleblowers launched Wednesday June 4 a new organization for whistleblowing and a new platform “to disclose information that citizens need in order to make truly informed decisions in a democracy” at a news conference at the National Press Club.

According to the Institute for Public Accuracy, the new organization is dedicated to “encouraging whistleblowers to disclose information that citizens need to make truly informed decisions in a democracy.” They have a new, one-stop-leak-shopping, source for news stories.

The ExposeFacts.org, which will include the open source “SecureDrop” whistleblower submission system overseen by the Freedom of the Press Foundation (and coded by the late Aaron Swartz), goes live and the group begins its first day.

According to the Institute for Public Accuracy, the goal of the group, whose advisory board will comprise more than 40 individuals, including Pentagon Papers Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, is meant to “shed light on concealed activities that are relevant to human rights, corporate malfeasance, the environment, civil liberties and war.”


Investigative journalists, bloggers and others could have a new, one-stop-leak-shopping, source for news stories.

NSA whistleblowers William Binney and J. Kirk Wiebe spoke at the news conference along with EPA whistleblower Marsha Coleman-Adebayo and journalist Barbara Ehrenreich, a member of the ExposeFacts editorial board.

ExposeFacts “aims to shed light on concealed activities that are relevant to human rights, corporate malfeasance, the environment, civil liberties and war,” the group says — and its website will feature a whistleblower submission system known as “SecureDrop.”

ExposeFacts.org, which features a video statement by famed Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg on its homepage, worked with experts to implement SecureDrop. Whistleblowers can utilize the system to securely submit documents and files to the organization’s board of journalists.
