City Lore’s “Across the Great Divide” Spotlights Individuality and Common Humanity

News from the Field

City Lore recently launched a digital project called “Across the Great Divide,” that aims to bring out the individuality and common humanity of Americans from different backgrounds, political orientations, ages, genders, and parts of the country. You can participate by sharing your outward political beliefs on a digital and magically colored hand and your more personal self with a brief Where I’m From poem. Then reach across the great divide by sending a digital postcard to those you may love but disagree with on the other side of the aisle.

To create your own postcard, visit their website at
