Celebrating 30 Years of PEER!

A Note From the Executive Director

Tim Whitehouse, Executive Director of PEERIn 2023, PEER marks its 30th anniversary. Our story has been one of remarkable service, hard work, and a steadfast commitment to helping current and former public employees speak the truth, protect science, and safeguard the environment. To mark this milestone, we are embarking on a year-long celebration and retrospective of our work through videos, webinars, and by sharing past successes in our publications.  In the coming years, growing environmental crisis and continuing attacks on government institutions will require us to recommit to our mission while strengthening our engagement with public employees, community groups, and environmental and public health organizations. Thank you for being part of this journey. – Tim

“Great leadership on PFAS issues! I hope they quadruple their budget and maintain their inspired leadership on a range of environmental issues.”

Judith Enck, President, Beyond Plastics

“PEER has been a champion for public employees who have a conscious and see politically conflicted decisions being made or worse, outright corruption. I frequently see important public agency issues that I am familiar with or was involved with highlighted in your publications and in the news (agency “capture”, toxic chemicals – like lead fishing gear/ammo, U.S.F.S. harvest practices, solid and hazardous waste, endangered species, …etc.).”
