The Peggy Browning Fund Philadelphia 2022 Ad Book

This year, we celebrate 25 years of the Peggy Browning Fund by paying tribute to our inspiration, Peggy Browning, and to our recently-retired Executive Director, Mary Anne Moffa. Peggy was a very special person – a Member of the National Labor Relations Board; an extraordinary labor lawyer; a skilled ice skater; a hiker; a loving wife and mother; a caring friend and true supporter of the collective bargaining process. PBF was established in 1997 by her friends and family to continue her life’s work – helping workers. We thank Mary Anne Moffa for growing our organization exponentially to the size it is today, and we thank everyone who’s support helped us become the preeminent organization in the country for encouraging and recruiting new lawyers for the labor movement. Our central program is a 10-week summer fellowship in which law students are matched with the needs of a pool of 72 mentoring organizations across the country, including unions, worker centers, nonprofit worker advocacy organizations, and union-side law firms. This year, we received a record number of applications for this program, and we’re happy to report that we’ve awarded 102 Summer Fellowships so far with just a few left to be filled. We wish each one of them a productive and memorable experience. PBF’s annual National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference has been highly successful in developing a greater understanding, passion and commitment to issues facing workers in this changing world. Over 3,000 students have participated since 1999. Last year, the pandemic didn’t stop us as we switched to an online event. This year, we plan to celebrate in-person! We can't thank Mary Anne Moffa enough for her 20+ years of dedicated and passionate leadership.
