The Neighborhood Postcard Project collects personal positive stories from underrepresented communities and mails them to random people in different neighborhoods within the same city to catalyze connections between people and neighborhoods. The project, which began in San Francisco, has been adopted in 18 communities around the world from Santiago, Chile to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
