Originally from Brooklyn, New York Betty Couvertier called the Atlanta area home for many years. Now in retirement, she travels between Georgia and Florida RVing with her dogs. This year her travels gave her a unique perspective of two of the more interesting elections in Georgia and Florida. She witnessed first hand some of the challenges voters had in Georgia. She had to get involved with the postal service and election officials to locate her absentee ballot so her vote would be counted. She joins us to share her experiences and observations on the politics, the candidates and what’s next from her unique perspective. An advocate for grassroots activism, Couvertier believes politicians at all levels must be held accountable. She sees the end of patriarchy on the horizon and a future that will be led by women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community. Couvertier was the founder, producer and host of “Alternative Perspectives,” an LGBT radio show that continues to air on WRFG “Radio Free Georgia” a community-owned and operated station. She has served in various capacities on a number of non-profit organizations over the years in the Atlanta area and is the recipient of many awards for her service to the community.
