Betty Peterson celebrates 100th Birthday
Nova Scotia Voice of Women for Peace helped to organize and came together to share a celebration of the 100th birthday of Betty Peterson, our long-time mentor and inspiration.
It is our turn now to continue the work that Betty is passing on to us. She always said “keep on keeping on”. She was always willing to put herself on the line for peace, social justice, and the rights of First Nations peoples.
Betty is undoubtedly an inspiration to us all. Happy 100th, Betty.
