The University of Michigan tribute to Mrs. Betty Ford
Thursday, October 11, 2012
915 E. Washington Street
Ann Arbor, MI 48109
Betty Ford was a trailblazing First Lady who brought candor and integrity to our national conversation. A passionate advocate of women's rights, Mrs. Ford engaged challenging social issues at great political risk and with a rare personal vulnerability. Her considerable impact on American life and culture has only deepened with time.
The event will feature a keynote policy lecture by Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure; a performance by Miki Orihara, soloist of the Martha Graham Dance Company; and tribute remarks from President Mary Sue Coleman, family members, and other special guests.
This event is free and open to public and will be live web-streamed.
