In addition to filming the Netflix show's third season, Browning is currently starring in a video that encourages people to volunteer before the midterms: "If I choose to keep my opinions and my activism to myself then I'm not affecting any change in my time here on Earth."

On Justin Simien's show, Browning plays a radio host and political organizer at a tony Ivy League school who ignites frank discussion of racial tensions and advocates for change on campus. Now, as the star of a series of recent short films for progressive group Swing Left, Browning is sharing the basics of grassroots organizing and why it matters on a larger stage — in the U.S.' upcoming midterm elections.
Browning started working with the group — which organizes volunteers to support Democratic candidates in swing districts — this summer with "online academy" videos that instruct viewers on how to canvass and make calls at a phone bank.
