Dylan planned rallies and met with Ministers on an ongoing basis to elevate the voice of the group. Now in Vancouver, Dylan has been a key contributor to many initiatives looking to uphold the new BC Provincial Government's promises to kids in care, particularly, extending supports where youth are currently left on their own, through collaborative demonstrations and research.
