Elizabeth Peratrovich Day

 

Elizabeth Peratrovich's Day is on Feb 16th!  For those who are not familiar with Elizabeth Peratrovich, she was a Tlingit woman and an Alaska Native Civil Rights Leader who was instrumental in passing the Anti-Discrimination Bill in Alaska. Before her powerful speech in front of a packed legislative gallery, discrimination against Alaska Native people was prevalent. Please check out the information below and feel free to share  😊
