A Discussion with Barbara Becnel

Please join us for an evening with Barbara Becnel.

Barbara Becnel is an anti-death penalty activist, author, journalist,
and film producer. She was a close friend of and advocate for
executed Crips co-founder Stanley Tookie Williams and was in
attendance at Williams' execution as one of his witnesses. She was
editor of Williams' series of children's books, which spoke out
against gang violence and was co-producer of the Golden Globe
nominated film Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story.

Becnel ran for the Democratic Party's nomination for Governor of
California in 2006, and came in third (out of eight Democrats) behind
Phil Angelides and Steve Westly. She has since re-registered Green.

Beverages and snacks will be provided.
