On Feb. 12, City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly met with the Multnomah Youth Commission (MYC) at the organization’s mid-year retreat. The MYC is comprised of citizens ages 13-21, and is the official youth policy body for both Multnomah County and the City of Portland, striving to provide a voice for youth on the county and city levels.
The conversation at the retreat centered on housing, immigrant/refugee, and transportation issues. Commissioner Eudaly spoke with the group about her own background in community leadership and activism, and how it led to her her current position at City Hall.
“What a dedicated and inspiring group of young people,” Commissioner Eudaly said. “I enjoyed our conversation and I hope they learned as much from me as I did from them. I am truly looking forward to working further with the MYC.”
