The Donna R. Liggins Center is named after Donna Liggins, a resident of the Sugar Hill neighborhood since 1965 and a former City employee since 1968. In her almost 40 years with the City of Tucson, Donna worked at nine different centers. She worked for the center which now bears her name and was formerly known as Northwest Center. Donna Liggins has lived in Tucson for more than 50 years and is a longtime advocate for civil rights and improving the lives of women in our community. She has served the community through numerous organizations, including the Martin Luther King Celebration Committee, the Black Women's Task Force, the Annual NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner, and the Juneteenth Committee. Donna Liggins was also the president of the NAACP Tucson Chapter, which she still actively supports. Liggins believes in the intrinsic value of spirituality, family, neighborhood, and community, and remains a proactive and committed member of our community.
