SENATOR GRAY-JACKSON thanked  Representative Johnson for bringing                                                               
the  resolution  forward.  She added  that  she  likes  Elizabeth                                                               
Peratrovich coin design [NA-2020-05].                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE JOHNSON summarized  that Elizabeth Peratrovich was                                                               
a  stellar figure  in the  state's  history. Prior  to the  Civil                                                               
Rights Act of the 1960s,  Elizabeth Peratrovich was involved with                                                               
the Alaska  Anti-Discrimination Act  of 1945, back  before people                                                               
even knew  what to call discriminatory  things exactly. Elizabeth                                                               
Peratrovich had been a recipient  of discrimination and she found                                                               
her voice and made sure her voice was known in Alaska.                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  JOHNSON   said  it  is  fitting   that  Elizabeth                                                               
Peratrovich  was chosen  to  be on  the  commemorative coin.  She                                                               
added  that she  is delighted  to carry  the legislation  forward                                                               
from Interior Alaska's 4-H group from Eagle.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
4:06:51 PM
