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.
Join us in celebrating Elizabeth Peratrovich. Learn more about her by using resources from the Consortium Library and libraries around the state.
