PEER does not have a Oregon field office, but if you would like to start one, let us know.
As a service organization, PEER relies on current or former agency employees to point out issues to work on. If you work for a resource management agency, and you struggle with:
- political interference with science-based decisions,
- undue influence of industry into permitting decisions,
- a management hostile to the conservation views of staff,
- censorship of job-related opinions, or anti-government threats from your community
PEER can help!
Our job is to deliver the problem to your agency decision-makers and the public while protecting the anonymity of the messenger. This may be as simple as a letter from PEER to your supervisor that says, "we're watching," or as complex as a legal challenge to your administration. To see examples of common tactics we've used in other states, check out our agency surveys, white papers and news releases.
As with all of our work, every project is employee directed. That means you call the shots.
