To recognize and inform San Francisco Bay Area whistleblowers, and other insiders who want to report wrongdoing that betrays the public trust.
Yesenia Guitron who was was a teller at the Wells Fargo bank in St. Helena, California and Johnny Burris who was a J.P. Morgan Financial Advisor in Sun City Arizona both were bullied and terminated for blowing the whistle on criminal activity by these large national banks. They both also filed complaints to OSHA and OSHA stalled and refused to investigate in the the case of Yesenia Guitron. The government still refused to prosecute the managers and executives who were committing illegal activities and engaged in a RICO to cover-up their violation of banking, fraud and other violations of the law.
They spoke at the San Francisco Workers Memorial Day WMD meeting at ILWU Local 34 on April 27, 2017.
The meeting we sponsored by Injured Workers National Network.
