In our Winter issue, our cover story is on David Hills, who works as an outreach worker with S.N.U.G. — guns spelled backward. After serving prison time himself for a shooting, he now strives to stop people from killing.
Another feature looks at recent changes at Kirk Park and the progress The New Dunbar Center has made in reopening.

In other news, The Stand welcomed a new board member.
Dale Harp joined The Stand as a board member in November but has been connected with the publication since 2013. He was first featured in The Stand’s pages for being a local, published author of “The Day My Dawgs Ran,” a book he wrote while incarcerated. He wanted to share his personal stories about going down the wrong path as a way to encourage youth to make better choices.
He next participated in The Stand’s recent summer-long storytelling series From Where We Stand. Now he is eager to be further involved as a board member. Harp is also a volunteer at the Mary Nelson Youth Center, Faith Hope Community Center and member of Citizen Action of NY.
