The end of the movie was talking alot about having the courage to stand up against an organization if you see a major problem. I though I'd do a little more research on whistleblowing. I found that there is actually a National Whistleblowing Center which provides would-be whistleblowers with alot of information. Including, attorney referrals, a law library, and links to seminars. It also outlines an act passed in 2002 called the Sarbanes-Oxly Act (SOX) which provides legal protections for corporate whistleblowers. It also provides a forum for people to offer support for corporate whistleblowers who have been cast aside in their professions. This organization provides the help and resources people need to be able to stand up against faulty organizations.
