Postcard campaigns are catalysts for change

Collaborating with friends who launched the “How could Colorado Springs rock?” postcard campaign, a group of San Francisco locals decided it was time to inspire people in the Haight district. They dropped postage-paid postcards in cafes and shops, inviting people to share their thoughts and engage with neighbors on issues of community improvement. The ihaightsf project has turned into an incredible display of local creativity and dialogue. I was excited to fill out a postcard and mail it in, and I can only hope other communities latch on to this idea!
