The Sunday Evening Forum is to be revitalized in 2014 and hopefully will become a nationally-recognized seasonal colloquium as it was when presented regularly in conjunction with the University of Arizona (UA) from 1947-1984.

The Sunday Evening Forum was responsible for bringing to Tucson many of the most prominent political and cultural figures of the time, often before their heyday. Guests of the Forum included future presidents John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Ford; political activists including Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Ralph Nader, and Margaret Sanger; and a number of luminaries from the fields of news and entertainment, notably, anchorman Walter Cronkite and Hugh Downs, Bob Hope and Jackie Robinson. Recruiting internationally, the Forum also hosted dignitaries from around the world, including future Nobel Peace Prize winner Yitzhak Rabin.

The Sunday Evening Forum matured from a young adult discussion group with 50 members, to being the nation’s onetime largest community forum, with a peak seasonal attendance of 55,000. Longtime NBC newscaster David Brinkley, who took the stage five times, declared the Forum "the best organized and best managed in the country".
