The Awareness Issue, 2019



October brings us many things. Colder nights, fall leaves, and Halloween.

But it’s also a month that shines a light on what we should be paying attention to year round: breast cancer and domestic violence. This year, in New Times’ Awareness Issue, Assistant Editor Peter Johnson writes about how dragon boat racing is helping some women with breast cancer, I speak with RISE and Stand Strong about programs meant to get at the root of domestic violence, Staff Writer Karen Garcia talks with cancer survivors about connecting with another, and Clothing Swap founder Asia Croson tells Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash about how the event benefits domestic violence victims.
