Anti-War newspaper advertisement, April 6, 1965. This was the first anti-war ad to appear in the Daily Sundial, the campus newspaper of San Fernando Valley State College (now CSUN). The ad was placed by the Committee for a SANE Nuclear Policy and encouraged all concerned citizens to participate -- through teach-ins, petitions, rallies, and any other legal means that provide voice for dissent.

Betty Ford not only founded the Betty Ford Center for substance abuse patients, but was a champion of women's rights, and was a staunch supporter of the proposed Equal Rights Act, passing Roe V. Wade, and of sharing her own struggles with addiction and breast cancer. She used her position as First Lady to show other women that breast cancer was nothing to be ashamed of, and after she discussed her diagnosis, the reported cases of breast cancer skyrocketed. She was a powerful force for good.
