Event

Whistleblower Fundraising Party
A fun-filled evening to help raise the funds to bring two whistleblowers to speak in Tacoma in February: Thomas Drake is a former NSA senior executive, and Jesselyn Radack is a former ethics advisor with the US Justice Department. Both are extremely courageous people and were featured in Robert Greenwald's film, War on Whistleblowers. More info about each below.

The evening will include appetizers, wine, an option of watching some or all of War on Whistleblowers (including popcorn), live local entertainment includes Tacoma's Poet Laureate Lucas Smiraldo, a gaming table (not gambling, but some sorts of games), door prizes, possibly a silent auction of political/peace & justice memorabilia from the closets and attics of aging-hippie activists, and generally a good-time/community-building party.

These are the people we need to raise the funds for bringing to Tacoma:

Thomas Drake, 56, is a former senior executive of the National Security Agency as well as a decorated veteran of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.  When Drake turned whistleblower, the U.S. government threw the Espionage Act at him and threatened him with 30 years in prison.  Drake rejected several deals because he refused to "plea bargain with the truth," and the U.S. Dept. of Justice eventually dropped all ten of its original charges.  

Jesselyn Radack, 42, is a former ethics adviser to the U.S. Dept. of Justice who turned whistleblower when she disclosed the FBI's ethics violations in the investigation of John Walker Lindh, denied an attorney in the aftermath of his capture during the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan.  An honors graduate of Brown Univ. and Yale Law School, Radack is now director of national security and human rights at the Government Accountability Project.
