ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on. – Thurgood Marshall

WARN {Whistleblower Anti-Bullying Resource Network} was founded by Attorney Shenandoah Titus on Independence Day, July 4, 2018, following his resignation from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on April 13, 2018.

Attorney Titus brought legal action against DHS for whistleblower retaliation, bullying and harassment – which he successfully settled with the United States Merit Systems Protection Board on July 27, 2018. Settlement funds were used to support the mission of WARN.

The mission of WARN is to help eradicate bullying, harassment and reprisal in the workplace.

We seek to strengthen legal protections for courageous whistleblowers in the public and private sector; advocate for tougher enforcement of existing laws designed to hold officials accountable for retaliation; provide a national support system for whistleblowers; and confront bullying, harassment and retaliation in all institutions, e.g., government, secondary and higher education, and private businesses.

WARN is a national office and we are happy to collaborate with our colleagues across the country, as well as internationally.
