Coming up on this week's edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore

  • Later this month, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to listen to the debate over the legality of same-sex marriage. Tony Paniagua talks with two representatives from Wingspan, a local organization that has been advocating on behalf of gay rights for over two decades.

  • Each year, a group of students from the University of Arizona remember the six million lives that were lost in the Holocaust. The students gather on the UA Mall for a 24-hour vigil, reading the names of victims, and talking with Holocaust survivors. Mark Duggan shares the sounds of this year’s gathering.

  • How would you break the news to your loved ones if you were diagnosed with breast cancer? Voices for the Cure introduces us to two sisters, one of whom is a breast cancer survivor, as they discuss some of the ways that families can help share the heavy burden.
