Bringing an Arizona perspective to national issues of justice

The Seeking Justice in Arizona Fall Lecture Series, now in its 17th year, brings in experts from our local communities to discuss critical national issues in an Arizona context. Each lecture is followed by a question and answer period and time to interact with the speaker informally. Admission is free and open to the public. 

All talks will take place in-person and a recording will be posted following the event on the SST YouTube page.
