About Us

The Peggy Browning Fund is a nonprofit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, prominent labor attorney and member of the National Labor Relations Board.

Margaret A. Browning

The mission of the Peggy Browning Fund is to educate and inspire the next generation of law students to become advocates for workplace justice. 

Through Summer Fellowships, an annual National Law Students Workers' Rights Conference and networking opportunities, we provide diverse, challenging work and educational experiences in the area of workers' rights. Our goal is to increase the students' understanding of the current issues workers face as well as promote the students' entry into the practice of public interest labor law.

"Peggy dedicated herself to justice and fair labor practices throughout our nation. Continuing to fight for what she believed even in the midst of her own battle with cancer, she served our nation and the American people with great courage and compassion."
President Clinton
