PANEL: The Whistleblowers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“I have another name for what they’re terming whistleblowers, and that’s righteous heroes…And thank goodness for them.” No religion is exempt from assault and scandal, and none is exempt from those willing to step up and speak out against that wrongdoing. This panel will bring together men and women in different faiths who have chosen to risk family, community and profession to call out a misuse and abuse of religious power against them or others. This panel will address how those in power, in many situations, still remain in power even after being exposed. We will discuss why and how these whistleblowers reached their ultimate decision to speak out and ultimately ask themselves the question: “Whose law do I abide by — man or the divine?”
