Autistic Self Advocacy Network
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which Autistic people enjoy the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. We work to empower Autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community, and seek to organize the Autistic community to ensure our voices are heard in the national conversation about us. Nothing About Us, Without Us!
Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network, Inc
The mission of Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network (AWN) is to provide community, support, and resources for Autistic women, girls, transfeminine and transmasculine nonbinary people, trans people of all genders, Two Spirit people, and all others of marginalized genders.
Communication First is the only US disability-led nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to defending, protecting, and advancing the civil rights of the more than 5 million children and adults in the United States who due to disability or other condition, are unable to speak or have difficulty being understood when speaking. We believe that having access to the tools and supports necessary to effectively express one’s thoughts, needs, and desires is a fundamental human right and that communication is essential to autonomy, self-determination, and well-being. Our mission is to engage the public, advocate for policy change, and use litigation to protect and advance the human and civil rights of this historically marginalized population.
Foundations for Divergent Minds
Founded and led by multiply-neurodivergent autistic people, our mission is to ensure equity, access, and fulfilled lives through inclusive, practical, and affirming neurodiversity-based programming and education.
