Rally at the leg
In 2016, over 17,000 members of the public signed a petition to increase financial support for youth aging out of care.
Today, the Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition of First Call BC will be trying to hold the government, who pledged to meet with youth from care, to account.
Dylan Cohen says 50 to 70 youth will meet with MLAs over lunch and that will be followed by a rally at the legislature…..
Cohen says in jurisdictions where they’ve implemented policies to support youth aging out of care the incidence of homelessness and addictions is much lower.
