Founded in 2009 by retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the O’Connor Institute For American Democracy, a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3), continues her distinguished legacy and lifetime work to advance civics education, civic engagement and civil discourse.
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, first woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court in 1981, founded the O’Connor Institute in 2009 following her retirement. The non-partisan nonprofit organization continues Justice O’Connor’s distinguished legacy and lifetime work to advance civics education, civic engagement and civil discourse.
The Ladies of the Court are the Women's Auxiliary Board of the Sandra Day O'Connor Institute For American Democracy.
These dedicated members of the community support the O'Connor Institute throughout the year and honor Justice O'Connor each year through the Legacy Luncheon.
The Ladies of the Court, the Women’s Board of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute hosted the annual Legacy Luncheon Friday, May 10, 2019 at the Arizona Biltmore. Following the success of Laura Bush for last year’s annual event, former Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden spoke of her new book Where the Light Enters, Building a Family, Discovering Myself. The Legacy Luncheon honors Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court.
Mrs. Laura Bush, Former First Lady of the United States, was the featured speaker at the inaugural Legacy Luncheon, Wednesday, April 25, 2018. Mrs. Bush reflected on her life and discussed her memoir, # 1 New York Times best seller, Spoken from the Heart.
The annual Legacy Luncheon honors the life and work of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court.
The luncheon benefited two charitable organizations, the Sandra Day O'Connor Institute and Hospice of the Valley. Co-Chairs for the 2018 Legacy Luncheon were Gena Bonsall and Penny Gunning. Lin Sue Cooney, former NBC 12 News anchor, served as mistress of ceremonies and moderated a conversation with Mrs. Bush following her remarks.
Like Sandra Day O’Connor, who was raised in Arizona on her family’s Lazy B Ranch, Mrs. Bush stated in her book, “I was born upon the prairie, where the wind blew free, and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures, and where everything drew a free breath.” In her memoir, she also describes life as First Lady and the post-9/11 White House, when anthrax attacks cut off the mail and she was no longer permitted to take strolls outside the gates. Polled by The Gallup Organization as one of the most popular First Ladies, Mrs. Bush, with a master’s degree in library science and a former librarian, helped advance national and global concerns during her tenure, including encouraging education and literacy worldwide
