NCC adds pro-life activities coordinator to its staff

A former legislative aide joins the Nebraska Catholic Conference (NCC) in a newly-created position to assist in the organization’s pro-life activities.

Paige Brown has been hired as statewide pro-life activities coordinator, the NCC announced Jan. 26.

In her new position, Brown will work with Marion Miner, NCC associate director for pro-life and family policy, to unify and strengthen pro-life activities across the three Catholic dioceses in Nebraska and their parishes.

“We are very pleased to welcome Paige to our team and to grow our pro-life efforts in Nebraska,” said Tom Venzor, executive director of the NCC.

“Paige has demonstrated a great passion for pro-life work and dedication to defending the most vulnerable in our society,” he said. “We are confident she will reinvigorate and inspire pro-life leaders across the state.”

Brown will work closely with diocesan pro-life coordinators, parish pro-life coordinators and other Catholic organizations, as well as other state and national pro-life leaders. She will also direct the statewide implementation of Project Rachel, a post-abortion healing ministry.

She is a 2018 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) with a degree in political science. As a student, she was president of UNL Students for Life and received the Students for Life of America Wilberforce Leadership Fellowship.

Brown worked as administrative aide and committee clerk to State Sen. Mike Hilgers in the Nebraska Legislature.

“I am elated to be joining the Nebraska Catholic Conference team,” said Brown. “I have always admired the work of the NCC, and I am honored to serve the bishops and the Church in Nebraska through advancing the work of the pro-life movement.”

The NCC represents the public policy interests of Nebraska’s three Catholic dioceses.
