As the former Attorney General of Arizona from 1991 until 1999, Grant Woods is one of Arizona's most acclaimed and successful lawyers. His career is legendary, with record jury verdicts and settlements in the toughest cases. He successfully argued Lewis v. Casey before the United States Supreme Court and was one of the principal architects of the states' lawsuits against the tobacco companies and was a key negotiator in the resulting largest civil settlement in history.
Dr. Warren H. Stewart Sr. has been Senior Pastor of the First Institutional Baptist Church of Phoenix since 1977. Called one of the most influential religious leaders in Arizona and the nation, Stewart has been recognized by others as "a man of conscience” with a commitment and dedication to the cause of moral leadership, human rights and a soldier of justice and equality.
Jerry Colangelo is currently a special adviser to the Philadelphia 76ers. He became the youngest general manager in professional sports in 1968 after being hired as general manager for the Phoenix Suns. Colangelo is the former owner of Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, Arizona Sandsharks, Arizona Rattlers and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
