Peggy Browning Fellow
Center for Progressive Reform
This year’s Peggy Browning Fellow is Conor Klerekoper. Conor is a law student at the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona. Conor has a passion for labor law, which is illustrated in his work in the Workers’ Rights Clinic at the University of Arizona, his volunteer work with Amazon Labor Union, and his prior summer legal experience with Unite Here Local 11. Prior to law school, Conor worked as a paralegal for Brown and Winters, a small environmental law firm in San Diego dedicated to fighting to protect the environment. After his work at the environmental law firm and before entering law school, Conor traveled the country in a van that he built into a home, visiting 40 states and 35 National Parks. This experience strengthened his love for and desire to protect the environment. Outside of work, Conor enjoys hiking, biking, skateboarding, painting, surfing, and snorkeling. Conor is very excited to join the Center this summer and contribute to its mission.
