Fierce Autistic Advocate: Autistic History: AUT10k or MSSNG project and Parallels to T4 from World War II

The organization we love to hate, Autism Speaks, teamed up with google to create the largest genome data base for autism on June 10, 2014. This was originally called AUT10k. It stands for Autism 10,000 genomes. 

Autism Speaks lacks autistic representation. They lack autistic membership on the board. There are only two autistic board members. They do not represent the desires and needs of the autistic community. Autism Speaks research budget ignores inquires focused on improving the lives of autistic people. At the time, there was only 1% of their budget going to family services. They only had .25% paying for adult services. The rest of the budget focuses on wiping us from existence.
