PEER Protects Public Employees
PEER counsels conscientious public employees facing career-changing moments of both crises and opportunity. We work on many fronts to protect public servants, specializing in whistleblower protections, First Amendment rights, and civil service laws. PEER plays an invaluable role in the environmental movement and in how the government operates. We aim to stop the assault on the government workforce and to give voice to the public servants who are working for transparency and accountability in government.
Across the country, those charged with protecting our environment are the victims of harassment, threats, assault, and intimidation.
