July 16 – Apollo 11 Moon Walk, 50th Anniversary Celebration
Where were YOU on July 20, 1969? Think back to what was going on in your life on that day. On that day, two brave astronauts were in a tiny capsule, 238,900 miles away from home. Commander Neil Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin were hoping this would be the day they would walk on the moon. Join Bev Tarpley and Suzan Bawolek to celebrate this amazing event with people all over America.
July 23 – Exploring Space: The Beauty of the Images
Through NASA’s decades of many missions and spacecraft, the images we have been able to see have brought amazing views of places millions of miles away from Earth, beyond Pluto, and our own solar system. Will we ever forget seeing the Mars rovers driving themselves all over the surface of Mars and sending back their photos? Join Susan Bawolek and Bev Tarpley as they look back at those amazing images, and then look forward to what NASA has in store for us as we move into 2020 and beyond.
July 30 – Arizona Justice Project: Seeking Justice for the Innocent
The Arizona Justice Project’s mission is to represent Arizona inmates whose claims of innocence or manifest injustice have gone unheeded. Every time an accused goes to prison without receiving a fair trial, we are one step closer to the loss of our own freedoms. Join the staff of the project to hear about their work and actual cases that brought freedom to inmates who were innocent or wrongfully imprisoned. To date, the AJP has received over 6,000 requests for assistance and currently has between 40-50 cases in post-conviction relief proceedings under the supervision of a review team.
