TJ Maxx: Not An Autistic Ally

[Note: Shared for #AutisticHistory archive purposes. This is NOT An Autistic Ally.]

Dear -, 

This World Autism Month, we are so grateful to our longstanding partners at T.J.Maxx, who have helped advance our work to support the autism community for nearly two decades. Through their commitment to our cause, T.J.Maxx has raised more than $30 million over the years – leaving a lasting impact on countless lives of individuals and families in the autism community.

Starting today through May 1, customers at T.J.Maxx stores nationwide can show their support for a kinder, more inclusive world by donating to Autism Speaks at the register. These gifts will help fuel our efforts to create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential.

You can learn more by visiting tjmaxx.tjx.com.

With gratitude,

Melanie Akins
VP, Corporate Initiatives

The Autism Community Is Not The Autistic Community

* The “autism community” is not the Autistic Community. The autism community was created by non-Autistic led organizations and includes mostly parents, professionals and their friends. Most of what the world knows about autism is sourced from the non-Autistic “autism community.”
