The New Times documents life in the gang-riddled Milpas neighborhood beyond the gangs. Responding to claims that previous articles about neighborhood gangs failed to show the real Milpas community, the New Times documents the lives of several of the community's residents and its community center that focuses on Hispanic heritage and education. Gangs touch every aspect of the Milpas neighborhood, but that doesn't mean the community's strength doesn't run deep.
