When Nicholas came to Selma, Alabama, he couldn’t ignore what he saw. It changed his perspective on his own life in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and when he went back to Eau Claire, he knew he had to do something…anything. Selma has that effect on people; it forever changed my life and my normal too. Nicholas wanted others to experience the spirit of Selma like he did. He knew if they could just get a taste, their “normals” would be changed. Nick brought a couple named Brett and Rachel to a RATCo (now known as New Expressions) performing event in Eau Claire in 2014, and their normals also began to change. Together they decided to create the Eau Claire – Selma Exchange Program (ECSE).
