Whistleblowers Mobilize to Address EEOC Failings at 8th Annual Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival

5 Comments

“The EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations’ failure to apply fairly Federal EEO complaint guidelines undermines the Notification and Federal Employees Anti-Discrimination and Retaliation Act and spurs a health crisis within the Federal workforce.”

Advocacy groups and Whistleblowers will gather at the upcoming 2019 Annual Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival. The gathering, which will take place in Washington, DC during July 29th-August 1st, 2019, provides a meaningful “mutual support network” for whistleblowers and advocates across the country.

The theme of this year’s Summit is True North—Persevering in the Pursuit of Justice. It will feature a variety of events, film screenings, and panel discussions to empower “truth-tellers” who create a better world for all people to thrive.

The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C), a 2019 Summit committee member, will host a panel to address the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) flaws. “The EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations’ failure to apply “fairly” the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint guidelines undermines the Notification and Federal Employees Anti-Discrimination and Retaliation Act (No FEAR Act). It also spurs a health crisis within the Federal workforce,” said Tanya Ward Jordan, President of the Coalition For Change, Inc.(C4C) and Author of 17 Steps: A Federal Employee’s Guide For Tackling Workplace Discrimination.

The USDA Coalition of Minority Employees will host a separate panel to address the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) harmful workplace culture. “Wrongful firings, reprisal, and intimidation are out of control at USDA. It has been this way administration after administration, The EEOC fails to hold government agencies within Agriculture accountable for unlawful acts against minority farmers, especially Black farmers, and USDA employees.” said Mr. Lawrence Lucas, President Emeritus of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees.

In addition to panels hosted by the C4C and the USDA Coalition, the Government Accountability Project will host a panel on the role of the Office of Special Counsel. The 2019 Summit event organizers, Michael McCray, Esq., and Marcel Reid, have arranged for an assembly of whistleblowers to cover additional panels covering topics such as: Guardianship, Surviving Whistleblowing, Working with Congress, Is Your Story a Book?, Working With Media, and Blackballing Minority Financial Institutions. Whistleblowers, advocates and members of the civil and human rights community are invited to participate in the free conference. For more information visit https://www.whistleblowersummit.com/

It’s a New Day for Judicial Oversight in America

Or so claims National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc., a U.S. legal system reform advocate — and so far, the U.N. Human Rights Council seems to agree.

ATLANTAJune 19, 2019PRLog — April 2, 2020 is the date set by the U.N. Human Rights Committee (HRCmte) for the United States of America to report on its compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).  America earlier agreed to receive a list of issues from the HRCmte, presumably that the U.N. treaty body wants addressed in America’s ICCPR report.  The HRCmte finalized that list at its 125th session which began on March 4, 2019 and ended on March 29, 2019.

National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc. (NJCDLP) is among the civil society organizations that provided the HRCmte information for developing its “List of issues prior to submission of the fifth periodic report of the United States of America” on implementation of the ICCPR.  Today, by joint letter, NJCDLP asks President Trump, U.S. Attorney General William Barr, and State Department official Mr. Scott Busby to ensure the HRCmte’s April 2020 deadline is met.  The U.S. legal system reform organization also asks to be consulted in preparation of America’s 2020 ICCPR report.

Since 2016, NJCDLP has been formally reporting on America’s legal system as part of a campaign known as Opt IN USA.  Through the reports, Opt IN USA “submits that America lacks effective avenues of redress and relief for the role of its judges in objectively discernible, national patterns of persistent U.S. legal system abuse.”  On October 10, 2018, the U.N. Human Rights Council (a U.N. charter body) determined the contentions are not “manifestly ill-founded”, and arguably deemed them true.  With that development, according to NJCDLP, America’s practice of merely “pooh-poohing” harsh critics of its legal system must end.  Writing for NJCDLP and its community mobilizing body, retired Police Chief Gordon L. Wiborg, Jr. and veteran good government activist Mr. Brian Kinter explain that the practice  “increasingly seems too widespread and subjective to be a hallmark of human rights protection.”

NJCDLP seeks to “meet with all government agents involved no later than Monday – September 23, 2019.”  NJCDLP pledges that its delegation will work with the Trump Administration in good faith if extended the opportunity.  The organization’s outreach makes the case that “America never conspicuously embraced a legacy of inadequate judicial oversight, and can certainly start preempting it now.”
