Perceptions of marginalized communities often form from single media sources. All you see on the news is the violence, drugs, and poverty. But, there are many positive stories that exist in these communities. Stories that need to be heard.
The Neighborhood Postcard Project fosters community connection through the exchange of these personal stories. Residents fill out a postcard with a positive personal story of their community. That postcard is then mailed to a random person in that city to create a stronger connection between people and communities.
The Neighborhood Postcard Project is a worldwide initiative sprouted from the SF Postcard Project in San Francisco, CA.
