Wrong is not the word I’d choose, although it fits nicely Suzanne Wright’s name (cofounder of Autism Speaks). The word discrimination (ableism) would be more accurate. Autism Speaks have had plenty of opportunities to promote respect as well as awareness of autism; instead they have chosen the path of fear and intolerance. There are plenty of other organisations more deserving of the publics support and corporate sponsorship (details in the link). Please take the time to read and sign the petition to give ‘Autism Speaks’ less power because they refuse to listen to the voices of people with autism (ironic given their name).
Please visit the change.org Petition to the Corporate Sponsors of Autism Speaks.
Please sign and share widely, along with the other the links at the bottom of this post.
Please feel free to share and use the images in this post to support this project, and note I have included a template for the comparison images to help others understand why we are standing against Autism Speaks.
Please, if you haven’t yet, take the time to read this letter written by co-founder of Autism Speaks, Suzanne Wright, Autism Speaks to Washington – A Call for Action. (Trigger warning – I’d suggest you consider of reading this hateful link when young children/teens are away from the screen)
