The Signals Network for whistleblowers

The Signals Network (TSN) provides customized support services to a selected number of whistleblowers who have contributed to published reports of significant wrongdoing. Whistleblowers often face legal, physical, psychological, and economic consequences. Because each whistleblower’s circumstances are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, no whistleblower can reasonably rely on the availability of any support services in advance.”

Tech Accountability

“Technology has become both essential and integral to every aspect of our lives. The growing dependence of our democracies on technology, and specifically on AI and private tech companies, for innumerable aspects of our day-to-day lives requires an unprecedented level of scrutiny of these industries.” – TSN

Tech Worker Handbook – A collection of resources for tech workers who are looking to make more informed decisions about whether to speak out on issues that are in the public interest. Aiming to improve working conditions, direct attention to consumer harms, or otherwise address wrongdoing and abuse should not be a solo or poorly resourced endeavor.
