Betsy Sweet is a life-long human rights activist, political organizer, small business owner and mother.
As Betsy was growing up, her granddad lobstered, her mom taught middle school math, and her Dad worked in foodservice. Betsy’s mother, Dottie, and father, Dick, instilled in her a can-do attitude early in life. On a road trip, the family car broke down, and Betsy’s mother, who knew nothing about cars, popped the hood open to take a look. She told a skeptical Betsy, “it’s a logical system; we can figure it out.” Dottie got that car working again, and they continued on their trip.
