It’s now a week after the start of the 2018 Summit.
I’d like thank once again the organizers of the event and the whistleblowers whom I met for creating such an important and successful event. I’ve blind-copied above those whom I met.
In a column linked below, I sought to summarize a few of the highlights. But any such effort is doomed to incompleteness. That’s because of such a varied and important agenda and the inevitable limits of space, at least for an op-ed length article. That said, I hope it helps keep our discussions going.
Justice Integrity Project, Focus Is On Solutions As 2018 Whistleblower Summit Begins Monday In DC
Andrew Kreig, July 30, 2018
The annual 2 1/2-day Whistleblowers Summit for Civil and Human Rights began on July 30 with a preview tailored to showcase the vital contributions that courageous, expert informants are making under difficult conditions to solve the nation's problems.
Among highlights of the first day was a luncheon featuring Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican who has voiced strong support through the years for government whistleblowers helping to expose waste, fraud and abuse hurting taxpayers.

This column contains an appendix with links to major news articles and commentaries written by others about the Summit. Kindly let me know (with a publication/broadcaster name, headline, and link) if you know of a major treatment that I overlooked. I’ll try to add to the appendix that that are most newsworthy.
Whatever the case on that, again congratulations and thank you making the event such a success.
