In October we were honored to host Becky O’Neil McBrayer, a member of Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation and a board member of Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Becky lost her Mother and Step-Father to murder in 2006 while running an Oregon Supreme Court Justice campaign. Becky O’Neil McBrayer is the director of Community Programs a St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church in downtown Portland. She has served as a labor, civil rights, political activist, and campaign manager around the country.
