Since the economic collapse of 2008, some of the most egregious practices and activities of the big Wall Street banks have been exposed by courageous insiders unwilling to violate their own sense of right and wrong. These whistleblowers have done a service to the entire country by showing us what really happens behind closed doors.
Despite the actions taken by Wall Street Whistleblowers to date, the big banks has managed to avoid accountability commensurate with the scale of the devastation they caused. But the Dodd-Frank Act provides protections for individual whistleblowers who come forward to report wrongdoing at their institutions.
If you are a bank employee or know one, the Home Defenders League is providing downloadable flyers that you can print out and share. It provides background on the protections in Dodd-Frank for telling the truth and ways to get in touch with organizations like the Government Accountability Project that can help you make the decision to come forward and support you after you’ve taken that step.
