Many thanks to 100 Black Men of Syracuse, Inc., this month’s fiscal sponsor. This local organization is committed to the intellectual development of youth and the economic empowerment of the African-American community. Plan to join them Sept. 17 for their annual Winston Gaskin Community Walk for Wellness held this year at the Creekwalk and in November for their annual banquet to honor fathers. To nominate a father, fill out a nomination form by Sept. 30.

Also in this issue, The Stand reflects on highlights from the summer, introduces the new Citizen Review Board administrator and brings back our Fatherhood Q&A feature.

Inside see images from The South Side Newspaper Project’s annual Photo Walk, peek into the first tiny home built by Andrew Lunetta and meet Alamin Muhammad who runs the nonprofit We Rise Above the Streets to help Syracuse’s homeless population.

The issue also features coverage of the Gone But Not Forgotten balloon release organized by a former V-NOT gang member and shares how one youth center is working to increase safety for its young clients after the slew of summer shootings.
