Mission: 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 equal access, rights, and opportunities. 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!

Rating: 5

ASAN has been diligent in promoting tolerance and empowering autistic people. They step in when "treatment" becomes torture and "awareness" becomes hate speech. They promote knowledge, rationality, and true understanding. This organization has made real change for Autistics and our families.
