Today, February 16, is Elizabeth Peratrovich day. She was a civil rights activist whose work was instrumental in the passing of the Anti-Discrimination Act of 1945; landmark legislation that was a first for the United States and Alaska as a territory. This legislation paved the way for advocacy of Alaska Native rights and for Indigenous people across the country.
