I first met Sam Wooden in early 2019, while attending a housing meeting in Dubuque.

While at that meeting, it was very apparent that this man, whom I didn’t even know (yet), was being the voice and sticking up for individuals who needed to make their voices heard. Since that time, I’ve been fortunate to get to know Sam, not just as a valued community member, but also as a friend.
