Biography of Betsy Rivard

Caroline (Betsy) Rivard is a political activist working on environment issues pertaining to nuclear materials. She is on the board of Women Legislators' Lobby (WiLL) and Women's Action for New Directions (WAND, formerly Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament). Rivard has been active in Atlanta WAND for approximately 16 years, serving on the board for at least eight years. WiLL and WAND educate women on the need to reduce militarism and violence and to redirect excessive military spending to unmet human and environment needs. WiLL/WAND support and work closely with numerous other peace, environmental, human needs, and women's organizations. Rivard's chemistry background and Oak Ridge, Tennessee, past (her father worked for the Atomic Energy Commission) made her concerned about the issues of nuclear weapons and power. She also serves on the boards of the United Nations Association of the USA, Nuke Watch South, Georgians for Gun Safety, and the Chattooga Conservatory.
