Jim Sayers: How volunteering at an Iowa prison helped me build a community

View descriptionShare

Jim Sayers entered an Iowa prison thinking every inmate was the same. He left with a close-knit community.

This story was first told during the Des Moines Storytellers Project's "Community" on Feb. 27, 2024 at Hoyt Sherman Place. 

The Des Moines Storytellers Project believes everyone has a story and everyone can tell it. 

Des Moines Storytellers Project events are filled with neighbors and notables who have a true, first-person story they’re willing to share in 8-10 minutes in front of a live audience.
