Building on the success of the Storytellers Project in Phoenix, the series expanded to Des Moines in 2015. These nights send a message that everyone has a story worth telling, and that everyone CAN tell it. These nights also send a message to the community that everyone is worth listening to. This is especially important in Des Moines and Iowa where people have pride in their identity and want to share stories that define and reinforce community values.
