Gray Area - a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Whistleblowing for Change: Panel Discussion & Book Launch

From the Organizers:

In this presentation, Tatiana Bazzichelli introduces for the first time in the US the book Whistleblowing for Change: Exposing Systems of Power and Injustice.

Based on the work of Berlin’s Disruption Network Lab and the contributions of 30 authors in the field of whistleblowing and social justice, the book offers a new methodology to empower the public by investigating whistleblowing as a developing practice contributing to change in society, culture, and politics. Whistleblowing for Change opens to the public unique stories of whistleblowers, journalists, activists, artists, filmmakers, advocates, and critical thinkers.

This panel involves two of the book’s contributors: Lisa Ling (Whistleblower, former Technical Sergeant, US Air Force Drone Surveillance Programme, US), co-author with Cian Westmoreland of The Kill Cloud: Real World Implications of Network Centric Warfare, a revealing chapter dealing with the present and the future of modern warfare, and Billie Winner-Davis (former Social Worker, US), who tells the story of her daughter and whistleblower Reality Winner who disclosed a document about Russian election interference to the media and became the number one leak target of the Trump administration.

This panel is free to attend with RSVP.
