What's it about?

Despite the risks attached to whistleblowing, ordinary people still put their lives at danger for justice and the greater good. These Blinks look into the lives of famous whistleblowers and the tumultuous events that have unfolded since they've stepped onto the world stage. From Cambridge Analytica to the US National Security Agency—you'll discover what motivated whistleblowers to put their lives on the line, the consequences they've faced for revealing secret information, and hopefully be inspired to think about how we can emulate them to live our truths and stand up for what's right in small ways every day. Are they heroes or traitors? You make the call.
