Review for Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, San Francisco, CA, USA
Futures Without Violence currently does not tailor its programs including Coaching Boys Into Men for people with autism and has not responded to such queries regarding tailoring for autism.
If Futures Without Violence tailors its programs for people who have autism, such programs can be even more effective and can even raise autism awareness.
Review for Advertising Council Inc, New York, NY, USA
A few years since the rise of web-based advertising, Ad Council PSAs (particularly online PSAs) started to be delivered outside their intended territory, being the United States, wasting up to at least US$200 million in donated media annually and this practice can also distort perceptions on issues not relevant to communities outside the US, such as the Lead Poisoning Prevention Campaign where lead paint was banned in Australia earlier than in the US and these improper practices are ongoing as of today; the Ad Council knew that this was occurring, yet did nothing about it.
The Ad Council does not currently have a publically available whistleblower policy, and also does not affirmatively demonstrate that their PSAs fully cater for people who have autism.
Some of the Ad Council’s board members and donors are from questionable industries such as alcohol or fast food, or have been complicit in human rights abuses such as Coca-Cola being involved in anti-union violence in Colombia.
