Whistleblowers, from both the public and private sectors, protect us from lawbreaking that we may never learn about.
When a government worker learns that an agency or official has broken the law, especially if the evidence is classified, they're often scared and don't know what to do. The same is true for workers across the private sector, including those from technology, financial, and media companies.
Whistleblower Aid is a pioneering, non-profit, pro bono law firm that helps patriotic government employees and brave, private-sector workers report and publicize their concerns — safely, lawfully, and responsibly. Our professional legal advice is free (unless we recover a monetary reward on your behalf) and confidential, but never ideological or partisan.
We help government employees and private-sector workers uphold their oath without breaking the law or exposing themselves to criminal prosecution. Whistleblower Aid provides lawful alternatives to illicit leaking.
No one should have to risk their freedom to follow their conscience.
Sometimes victories come on the pages of a newspaper as well as in the courtroom. Whistleblower Aid helps whistleblowers and journalists work together to lawfully expose government and corporate wrongdoing. Justice Louis D. Brandeis once called sunlight the best disinfectant. We couldn't agree more.

If you know of unlawful activity by government agencies or officials, please get in touch.
Whistleblower Aid was founded by John Napier Tye, a whistleblower who used lawful channels to publicize alleged unconstitutional activity by the National Security Agency during the Obama administration. His personal experience made him want to help others struggling with how to respond to government and corporate lawbreaking.
We are a public charity that depends on donations for everything that we do. Together, we can protect our Republic.
