FaithLeaks is a non profit media organization founded on the belief that increased transparency within religious organizations results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse. The organization provides sources and whistleblowers the technical ability to anonymously submit sensitive documents for use by professional and citizen journalists for starting and expanding news reporting, public commentary, and criticism related to religion.
FaithLeaks started in November 2017 and is a project by the Truth & Transparency Foundation (TTF), a non profit founded by Ryan McKnight and Ethan Gregory Dodge that same month. Through 2018, all FaithLeaks releases were announced via the FaithLeaks Newsroom; however, starting in 2019, the TTF began publishing investigative news stories surrounding the FaithLeaks documents. You can read those stories at the TTF's website. The FaithLeaks Wiki continues to serve as a document archive and its changes can be followed here.
FaithLeaks uses SecureDrop, an open-source submission system that allows us to securely accept documents from and communicate with anonymous sources. This system is also used by many news organizations including the Washington Post, the Guardian, the New York Times, and many more.
