From Governor Bill Walker: ”
“Earlier this summer, Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Mallott sent a letter to the the U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary recommending that Elizabeth Peratrovich be featured on the redesigned 10-dollar bill. Elizabeth was a driving force for civil rights in Alaska, and played an instrumental role in making Alaska the nation’s first organized government to end legal discrimination – nearly twenty years before passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.
