Table Talk highlights community members who unapologetically inspire change through their work. Their dedication isn’t about seeking praise but about filling the gaps in our community where help is needed most. We hope you find inspiration and discover your own ‘why’ as you hear stories you can relate to. This project is supported by the Minnesota Legacy Fund
