Warning: Autism Speaks is a hate group that has been protested by Autistic people since their inception.

Autism Speaks is not just an organization, they are also the largest private investor in research, have immeasurable influence over healthcare and services that affects Autistic people’s lives, while at the same time excluding Autistics from having representation in legislation about us. This organization has pushed Autistic abuse as therapy and eugenics as the cure.

Only recently has Autism Speaks made a show at inclusion — they co-opted the Autistic civil rights movement symbolism and are now trying to pretend their part of the Autistic civil rights movement — without ever acknowleding, apologizing, making transparent their true history and involvement in the suppression of Autistic voices all these years.

Fact: Autistics have been protesting Autism Speaks since 2005 for our basic civil and human rights.
