Whistleblower’s is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the annual Whistleblower’s Summit July 29, 30 and 31st in Washington, D.C.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lawrence Lucas and I host Lesa Donnelly and Ron Cotton as we discuss recent updates in the Women of Forestry Service and ongoing issues with the USDA in general.  The continuing failure of the USDA to respond to more than 20 years of reported sexual harassment and retaliation for reporting incidences of abuse, allows these egregious acts to continue without penalty.  We we also be discussing the ongoing disparity of treatment and access to programs that affects minority farmers; a system that has resulted in more than 2 million acres of agricultural land stolen from the rightful owners.

Tune in as we update and recap the current state of affairs with regards to the USDA and its failure to function appropriately.

Lesa donnelly: vice president, USDA Coalition of Minority Employees, representative & spokesperson for abused women & class complainants (Forest Service in the western region).

Full House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held yet another hearing on November 15, 2018 to address the rampant and decades long history of sexual misconduct including documented cases of molestation, rape, gender discrimination and retaliation and intimidation for reporting these abuses.

Ron Cotton is President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees which is a USDA sanctioned, independent employee resource organization that works to ensure respect, dignity, and equal opportunities for employees and farmers.

Lawrence Lucas, Founding member and President Emeritus, of the USDA Coalition of Minority employees since May 1994.

Whistleblower’s is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Annual Whistleblower’s Summit  in Washington D.C., July 30 & 31, 2018.  The public is cordially invited.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our guests will be:  Lawrence Lucas, Lesa Donnelly, Ron Cotton, and Shannon Reed

We will be discussing the proposed reorganization of the USDA office of general council?…what will it mean for the civil rights and administration processes?  The USDA continues to protect abusive managers at taxpayer expense.
The Forest Service alone is still riddled with sexual abuse claims and is still covering them up along with other charges of discrimination and abuses.  Lesa Donnelly and Shannon Reed will speak about Shannon’s own experience of abuse within this rogue organization.  Even after national exposure in a five part series on PBS, things remain the same.
Ron Cotton and Lawrence Lucas will discuss the recent news release by Corey Lea pertaining to the coming vote  for the Gubernatorial office in Georgia.       “The Black Farmers, who are the most affected by the continuous discrimination of The USDA, will hurriedly point at the Black Congressional Caucus and how they voted against the Black Farmers more than a decade ago, to keep the Republicans from getting credit for saving the Black Farmers. On the other hand, Ms. Abrams is an attorney, she will probably quickly take the route of and road less traveled and say something like- “When I am the Governor of Georgia, I will sue the USDA on behalf of the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Small Farmers alike, to keep Georgia Farmers competitive in a global market. It’s our Georgia and not Georgia for a chosen few.”
