Today, we joined a coalition of organizations in filing a federal lawsuit challenging North Carolina's anti-whistleblower Ag Gag law.
Our organization has helped thousands of truth-tellers face an assortment of retaliation, but as our Executive Director stated, this law is "one of the most appalling overt attempts to silence whistleblowers" in our org's 38-year history. It cannot stand.

Someone should tell that to the USDA Office of Inspector General (OIG), which just released an interim report about its MARC investigation.
