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, PBF Alum Antonia Domingo, PBF Board Member Gwynne Wilcox, and coordinated by PBF staff Ruby Tumasz, is planning up to 20 workshops across the country. 

Due to Covid-19, all of our workshops will be held virtually for 2020.

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.
