Regional Workshops

Advocating For Workplace Justice - Continues to Broaden PBF's Outreach!

This fall, PBF’s Regional Workshops Committee, co-chaired by PBF Board Chair Rich Brean is planning up to 20 workshops across the country. 

Due to Covid-19, most of our workshops will be held virtually for 2021.

PBF’s Regional Workshops Program, entitled Advocating For Workplace Justice, is held at law schools across the country and consists of a one-hour panel discussion followed by a networking reception.  Panelists include union lawyers, labor law firm attorneys, labor law professors, Peggy Browning Fellowship Alumni and attorneys from the U.S. Department of Labor and the NLRB.
