Margaret A. ‘Peggy’ Browning was a prominent labor attorney in Philadelphia who was the first labor lawyer appointed to the National Labor Relations Board in 1993.

The mission of the Peggy Browning Fund is to educate and inspire the next generation of advocates for workplace justice. Through fellowships, workers’ rights conferences, networking and other programs, we provide unique opportunities for law students to work for economic and social justice.

Leadership Circle Members


Friends of Peggy Browning

At PBF, gifts at all levels help to keep our programs running and continue to introduce law students to rewarding careers in the labor movement.  Those who make annual gifts of $1,000 or less, or those who prefer to make smaller multiple gifts over the year instead of one or more larger gifts, become Friends.  Friends of Peggy Browning who prefer to give smaller multiple gifts, commit to giving either monthly or quarterly.  This creates a steady, reliable source of funds for our programs.

To learn more about the benefits of becoming a member of Friends of PBF, contact
Rhonda Gelman Kelley, CFRE, at or call 267-273-7994.
