The Stand’s September print issue features six pages of photos from July’s Expanded Photo Walk. These represent a tiny fraction of all the images snapped that day. View the collection here and join us Sept. 6 for a reception at The Link Gallery in downtown. The exhibit showcases 30 photos. Additionally, 10 images are on permanent display at five community centers and business on South Salina Street.
Inside this month’s print issue, read a profile on Karen Loftin, a former parolee, who worked tirelessly last year to help those leaving prison reunite with their families in Syracuse. Her role was part of a $95,000 grant run under PEACE Inc. that is still waiting for state review in determination if it will be renewed. If it is re-awarded, Loftin could return to her role as a case manager and further support ex-offenders trying to start over in free society. Her story is the second in our “Prison to Family” series completed by a handful of Newhouse reporting and broadcast students.
This issue is also the first edition overseen by Greg Munno, now severing as Newhouse faculty advisor to the project. He also serves on The Stand’s board of directors.
Lastly read coverage of the South Side’s Get the Lead Out block party to raise awareness about the hazards of lead poisoning. Local groups will continue to work to educate parents and seek funding to target the issue.
