Public servants are under attack and government is failing in many of its basic functions. That is why PEER insists on high ethical standards, professionalism, accountability, and public participation in decisions that affect public health, the environment and natural resources. We fight for the strengthening of laws affecting open records, whistleblower protections, data quality, and government oversight. We are fierce litigators of freedom of information laws and often call on Inspectors General to investigate government malfeasance.
We use all the tools available to us to help public employees right environmental wrongs and to build the foundation for lasting, positive change.
