Did you know the Alaska Equal Rights Act of 1945, the first anti-discrimination law in the United States, was signed into law today? You do now!

It was signed February 16th, 1945 and dismantled Jim Crow laws in Alaska.

I’ve gotten a new position at work, and am now working remotely. It’s a big change for me, although I’m pretty late to the work from home party.
