About Stories of Change

Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy promises change. And while many ask if he can deliver on that change, those who have been inspired by Obama’s message of hope have already begun to make changes in their own lives and in their communities.

“We Are the Ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

In considering the shape that this project would take, we knew that the photographs would make up a significant portion. But we also wanted to share the written and verbal stories of change and empowerment, as experienced by ordinary Americans who we meet and photograph along the way.

If you are interested in contributing your story to the We Are the Ones Project you may submit it through our Contact Page, and we may include it on the website or even in the book! We are sharing our own Stories of Change to get the ball rolling, but as always, this Project will be a communal effort.
