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.
