Social Justice Leadership Interests
Myles J. Browne graduated from Hampton University in 2020 with a BA in International Relations and a minor in Spanish. At Hampton, Myles was an avid leader for the LGBTQ+ community on campus, leading the school’s first LGBTQ+ organization-M.O.S.A.I.C. On campus, Myles furthered the creation of an inclusive space and belonging for queer students and faculty by meeting with Hampton administration to address concerns of homophobia and queerphobia.
Since their graduation in 2020, Myles has been working for POWER Interfaith–a local Philadelphia nonprofit to advance voting literacy and education in the Black & Brown faith communities. These experiences lead them to manage a team of advocates statewide to canvass communities in Harrisburg, Allentown, Philadelphia, and Bucks county. Recently, they work as a Data Specialist to advance ways POWER communicates with voters, and are interested in the intersection of community advocacy/organizing, technology, and policy. As an incoming master’s student and Social Justice Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, Myles is interested in researching the effects homophobic policies have had on Black LGBTQ+ youth.
