Madison, WI – On October 9, 2010Regional Tibetan Youth Congress of Wisconsin celebrated the 41st Anniversary of the Tibetan Youth Congress Founding Day in association with RTYC-MN with a live band performance from Melong.The event began with speeches from the Presidents of RTYC-WI, RTYC-MN, and Wisconsin’s Tibetan Association Secretary. Wisconsin’s seven executive board members took a pledge to follow and uphold the Tibetan Youth Congress mission and bylaws in front of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s portrait. Over 150 Tibetans from the community came to support the newly formed RTYC chapter.The Founding event was successful. The support RTYC-WI received from the Tibetan community, RTYC-MN board members, and the inspirational songs from the band Melong reminded Tibetan youth just how far they have come since the inception of the Tibetan Youth Congress, inspiring board members to keep the Rangzen flame lit.The RTYC board members are a diverse group of young residents around Madison, brought together by Rangzen goals.
