EVENT: Why are whistleblowers still facing jail time?

Two whistleblowers are facing jail time on Labor's watch because the government has refused to act. 

Transparency and integrity are at the heart of our society - but right now, too many who speak up about wrongdoing are facing punishment

Join a stellar panel, including Australian Greens Leader Adam Bandt, the Centre for Public Integrity's Catherine Williams, award-winning journalist and press freedom advocate Professor Peter Greste, the Human Rights Law Centre's Kieran Pender, the Australia Institute's Polly Hemming, and Whistleblower Justice Fund Founder Rex Patrick, for a discussion on truth, transparency and the chilling effect when it is the whistleblowers, not the wrongdoers, facing jail time.

A week out from Afghan Files whistleblower David McBride's sentencing, and with tax office whistleblower Richard Boyle heading for trial later this year, this will be a timely and powerful discussion about secrecy, accountability and whistleblowing for change.

Places are limited, so RSVP's are essential to reserve your seat.
