I’ve verbally offered my resignation to the board of Resources for Independence Central Valley, and will follow up with a formal letter.

Unfortunately, RICV has been made an unintended victim of a coordinated attack to hurt me. This is an independent living center for disabled people — who’ve I’ve been a board member since 2014.

I love the people at RICV. I 100% support the work they do. They’ve been instrumental in helping me survive disability, abuse, and learn how to speak and be a board member. Also, how to participate in legislation and speak with leaders and government officials.

I am able to be this strong because of their support. And I shall take this situation as an opportunity to continue my activism in an even louder, bolder approach. Obviously, there’s so much work to do to stop autistic abuse.

So, I hope you AutismMoms are happy to remove an authentic autistic voice from a disability community. I can’t in good conscious let RICV and their staff suffer your rage and detract from their good work supporting disabled people.

I won’t let you harm this community any more than you’ve attempted.

RICV does good work and I’ve been so proud to be a part of their board all this time. Please support them, as I do. We need them so much in our community.

Yes, I’m sad it came to this — but it’s with love that I will write my resignation to the board. They’ve been an incredible support for me and I’ll always be grateful.

Autistically,

Eve Reiland
