Judith Browne Dianis Discusses Pioneering Civil Rights Work

Former Fellow Judith Browne Dianis (’92) was profiled for a story in The Pennsylvania Gazette about the Advancement Project, the civil rights nonprofit she helped found 20 years ago (“‘The Business of Hope,’” Oct. 19). Now executive director of the organization’s national office, Judith has led the Advancement Project in its efforts to enforce voting rights, champion immigrant justice and end the school-to-prison pipeline. She said she has been inspired to watch “people who are the most oppressed, the most disenfranchised, the most impacted fighting back.”
