Take a Pledge | Support Autistics Now #TheAutisticUnion

takepledgetoday550Take a Pledge | We Need Your Help.

Autism Acceptance must include Autistic culture, community and history. We embrace Autism as a neuro-social difference. We support Autistic  people and their opportunity to live a healthy, happy and productive life. This includes rigorous scientific approaches to co-occurring conditions.

We believe that Autistics have a right to life (now and in future generations), identity, community and culture, and participate as leaders of their own community business organization (non-profit), government and related support service organizations. Autistics need person-centered approach to support, services, and lifestyle, and protection measures from those who attack them.

Autistics need support and help now. Right now.

It’s going to take all of us — Autistic peers, loved ones and valued allies/organizations to create a positive change for Autistic people. Can you support that?

Below are the points of The International Autistic Union — this is what we support.
