A journey to listen to the voices of CHANGE across a nation.

“What if … I drove around the country to find out what Americans of all political and social backgrounds are thinking about change?”

-Mary Clare

EX:Change began with a question, “What if?”
  • What if I took a road trip on the highways of the continental U.S and stopped to listen along the way – to find out what we as American people mean when we say we want change?
  • What if I asked, What does change mean to you?  How will you recognize it?  What do you want to have remain the same?
  • What if I listened beyond the political rhetoric to hear the practical ideas at the heart of our shared wisdom?
  • What if, through what I learned from everyday Americans, EX:Change could open a door for dialogue across our differences and help build a stronger, more informed and more responsive national sensibility?
  • “What if?”
