March 21 Celebration Set for Joint Project of SU & Southside Community Coalition
The South Side Newspaper Project published its first print issue of The Stand newspaper in March of 2010. The issue debuted over Valentine’s Weekend with a launch party. At that time, we invited residents to ‘Fall in Love with The Stand’ – a free paper and website devoted to the South Side.
Now we invite our readers to celebrate our five-year milestone.
The celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 21, at the South Side Innovation Center located at 2610 S. Salina St.
The event will welcome Keynote Speaker Sean Kirst, an award-winning columnist for Syracuse Media Group and a Stand reader.
The South Side Newspaper Project is a joint collaboration of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in partnership with the neighborhood group the Southside Community Coalition.

Former Newhouse School reporters recall what they learned during their time writing for The Stand
The origins of the South Side Newspaper Project go back several years, to a project Newhouse Professor Steve Davis gave his class – create a series of in-depth stories about Syracuse’s South Side. The collection was then assembled into a tabloid paper and distributed to the community. After being well received, Davis got the idea for The Stand. This was in 2006. After a few years of organizing and securing grants, the first group of students began contributing to The Stand print paper in 2010.
“We the Dark Girls are talented, smart and strong…”
