HOW DO I SHARE MY STORY?
Share your tip or story via the below form.
If you believe your information is highly sensitive in nature - you are a whistleblower, a worker/employee, or a person with knowledge of a high-stakes situation - please share via an encrypted communication method from non-work devices rather than on the below form. How? We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can request our Signal (encrypted messaging) and telephone information by emailing us there. Lioness cannot guarantee the digital security of your information, but the Freedom of the Press Foundation has some helpful tips for protecting yourself while sharing sensitive information.
HOW DOES LIONESS WORK WITH STORY-GIVERS?
The Lioness team follows up with story- and information-givers via their preferred communication method to solicit more information — screenshots, recordings, first-person accounts, corroboration from other witnesses — all off-the-record.
If the information is deemed newsworthy (for what is newsworthy and how we vet stories, see our FAQ), Lioness compiles relevant story information, and privately shares that information with a network of trusted journalists. If the information is sensitive in nature, we will only use encrypted channels to communicate with journalists, and will not include personally-identifiable-information.
Lioness serves as a sounding board for sources, answering questions about speaking with the media, helping set terms for conversation (on background, off the record), and providing connections to free 30-minute calls with legal counsel if the source is sharing sensitive information.
