Thursday, March 9, 2017 (MINNEAPOLIS) – The Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board and the Minneapolis Youth Congress joined forces Thursday evening in an effort to share their perspectives on making Minneapolis a welcoming city for refugees and immigrants in the wake of White House executive orders. Despite the recent delay due to judicial action, youth from the MYC and elected officials from the YCB felt it was imperative to release a Statement of Welcoming to not only highlight the issue but to show their solidarity and support to refugee and immigrant families during this time.
Elected officials in attendance were Mayor Betsy Hodges, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, City Council member and YCB Chair Cam Gordon and Hennepin County Commissioners Marion Greene and Peter McLaughlin as well as Hennepin County Library Director Lois Langer Thompson.
