The Minneapolis Youth Congress (MYC) members met for the first time on October 25, 2007 at the Minneapolis Central Library. They were collectively presented with brown MYC t-shirts with the No Decision About Us, Without Us! theme on each of their backs. The youth were joined by elected officials from the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board endorsing this great movement for the City of Minneapolis in youth leadership, voice and power.
Elected officials addressing the youth included Hennepin County Commissioner Gail Dorfman, Mayor RT Rybak, Minneapolis City Council Member Elizabeth Glidden and Minneapolis School Board Director Peggy Flanagan.
