Join Us This Giving Tuesday
#GivingTuesday is TODAY. I invite you to join us and make a meaningful impact by supporting PEER on this special day. We’ve participated in #GivingTuesday for the past 11 years and it’s always a great opportunity to give back.
Your gift today carries an outsized impact, enabling PEER to champion environmental protection and empower public employees who safeguard our planet.
Your support strengthens our collective efforts to ensure a sustainable future for all. PEER is a dynamic and effective organization. In the past year, we have had many successes on issues ranging from combatting climate change, strengthening the management of our public lands, improving the management of toxic chemicals, and protecting academic freedom. We are certain our success will grow in the coming year.
Just this week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it is seeking public comments on a rulemaking petition led by PEER and the American Bird Conservancy on behalf of 65 non-profit groups. The petition proposes major reforms in the way the agency regulates systemic insecticides with a focus on the neonicotinoids, which have caused excessive honeybee deaths and bird mortalities since their introduction to the market more than 20 years ago.
Your gift today will support our work fighting for birds, bees, and a cleaner and safer environment for all.

PEER and other groups are suing to require an environmental assessment of the site just outside of LA. Read More »
