Jim McDonough, Ramsey County Commissioner , shared with guests his passion for children and his dedication to ending sexual violence, fighting drug addiction, unplanned pregnancy, and ending homelessness. "The work that EVOLVE is doing directly targets these issues, if we can find the root of the problem, we can solve it at it's source."
