Over 60 Disability Organizations Condemn Autism Speaks–Hollywood should follow their lead

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network Release this Press Release and Protest Advisory.  The Final Letter to Autism Speaks is in the previous blog post.  Celebrities and Actors should show their support of the disability community and condemn Autism Speaks.  If you are an actor or celebrity and agree, please contact me so we can show you how to let them know that this is not acceptable

Perhaps “autism speaks” has done a good thing by mobilizing the Autism community to take back their identity from aspects of the neurotypical community that want to control it. My sympathy and support goes out to parents who are struggling with children, but that doesn’t forever give them control over the situation.
