About The Signals Network

Transparency and accountability are the guardrails that keep democracy on track. In many cases, the public relies on courageous whistleblowers for knowledge of government and industry malfeasance. But whistleblowers who come forward often face legal, physical, psychological and economic retaliation.

The Signals Network (TSN) is an international 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting whistleblowers who have shared public interest information with the press and public. Founded in 2017 by journalists, whistleblowers, lawyers and entrepreneurs, TSN operates internationally to hold powerful interests accountable.

To support whistleblowers and hold power to account, The Signals Network has developed an end-to-end approach that includes: empowering workers to stand up to power and speak out about wrongdoing; protecting whistleblowers who contribute to published reports of wrongdoing; supporting journalists to investigate wrongdoing; and, advocating for lasting change as a result of whistleblower revelations.

The Signals Network actively supports dozens of whistleblowers globally as they report on wrongdoing and fight for lasting change. These courageous individuals have provided information on the biggest media stories of our time to a range of international media outlets, including Big Tech data violations and government and corporate corruption, #MeToo abuses, political propaganda online, health hazards and more. Their information has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Time, Le Monde, BBC, Der Spiegel, The New Yorker and more. We have coordinated the publication of major investigations through media in the U.S. and across Europe that reached tens of millions of readers. Recently, we provided protections for whistleblowers in Africa as part of a major report in Time magazine on Facebook’s content moderation system, in Europe as part of Uber’s labor practices and lobbying efforts, and in the US as part of Twitter’s business practices. More information is available on our website.
