The Zip Code Memory Project invites people to re-imagine Zip Codes, not as zones of separation but as interrelated spaces for connectivity and mutual care. COVID-19 highlights how infection and death rates for the virus map onto New York Zip Codes. As part of this moment of reflection and healing, community members have created postcards responding to one or two questions: What have we lost and learned from COVID? How can we heal and grow together?
Note: Masking is required for all indoor UCLA Organized Events. Non-UCLA community members attending the event must show proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID test (within last 24 hours) upon entry. UCLA affiliates (e.g., faculty, staff and students) attending an indoor or outdoor Organized Event must show their UCLA COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring Clearance Certificate showing “cleared for events and venues.” Details of UCLA’s COVID protocols can be found here.
