Life with Autism: Inclusion – YouTube

 

Changing the title to my series to make a bit more sense. This is something that i’ve been really, really pondering a lot about. The importance of inclusion and the reality of making things work for all involved. I believe equality and fairness is really the root of this and that we must think of our differently abled brothers & sisters and support brands, causes and people who truly believe that we are all deserving of the most equal of chances.

The disability rights movement is a global[1][2] social movement to secure equal opportunities and equal rights for all people with disabilities.

It is made up of organizations of disability activists around the world working together with similar goals and demands, such as: accessibility and safety in architecture, transportation, and the physical environment; equal opportunities in independent living, employment equityeducation, and housing; and freedom from discrimination, abuseneglect, and from other rights violations.[3]Disability activists are working to break institutional, physical, and societal barriers that prevent people with disabilities from living their lives like other citizens.[3][4]

Fluorescent Lighting & Cheap Sunglasses – How I Stopped My Migraines Without Medication – YouTube

I’m not saying this will work for everybody but cheap tinted glasses from http://www.zenni.com have changed my life. Doctor’s couldn’t help me but my amber glasses stop my chronic headaches/migraines caused by bad lighting/light sensitivity.

My glasses are amber, but some people like blue, pink, or green. Some may need darker glasses and others may only need a slight tinting. Please be aware you may go through SEVERAL pair of glasses before you find the ones that work for you – IF this works for you. It may not work for everybody.

ASAN Condemns Senate Budget Vote

asan

ASAN condemns the passage of the Senate budget resolution, which would cut $5 trillion dollars over the next decade from Medicaid, Social Security, and other essential services that allow people with disabilities to live healthy and productive lives in our communities.

Less than one month after the disability community defeated the latest attempt to destroy Medicaid, Congress is at it again. Despite fervent promises to the country, the bill bears a striking resemblance to the widely disavowed White House budget proposal, and replicates the same critical flaws. This partisan attack on our community is being rammed through to pay for a massive tax cut on the wealthiest Americans, at the cost of the lives and liberty of people with disabilities. Real tax reform should benefit all citizens, and cannot not be done by cutting basic programs that support people with disabilities in the community.

While the deepest cuts are hidden behind vague instructions that will lead to unspecified sequestration and severe cuts, we aren’t fooled. The disability community cannot afford this budget. ASAN urges Congress to stop this devastating bill before it can cause real harm and start over with a bipartisan bill that protects basic programs and the lives and well-being of disabled Americans. Our lives are worth more than this.

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for autistic people. ASAN was created to serve as a national grassroots disability rights organization for the autistic community run by and for autistic Americans, advocating for systems change and ensuring that the voices of autistic people are heard in policy debates and the halls of power. Our staff work to educate communities, support self-advocacy in all its forms, and improve public perceptions of autism. ASAN’s members and supporters include autistic adults and youth, cross-disability advocates, and non-autistic family members, professionals, educators, and friends.

#ActuallyAutistic Adults | Are We Being Silenced by a Community Business Organization for Profit?

Why are #ActuallyAutistic adults so successfully diminished and minimized by Autism Speaks?

This non-profit organization for Autistics is so powerful our they’ve trampled our #ActuallyAutistics voices and Civil Rights for over a decade now. The rottenness of this community business organization is common knowledge in the Autistic community, and yet it relays like a science-fiction plot to the general neurotypical world.

Why Does Autism Speaks have a Shit-Ton of Money and Power?

Autism Speaks reported a 10 million dollar year-over-year loss in donations for 2016, an 18% reduction. Yup, that’s a helluva lot of money and yet, only 18% loss. Still a shit-ton of money there folks. The loss was reported to changes in the business organization’s MSSNG research program, and a dip in funds raised at the Autism Walks.

And Again . . . no media mention of the #REDinstead campaign and #ActuallyAutistics. You know the folks protesting the fundraising walks and creating awareness of the Autistic Civil Rights Movement? No questions from mainstream media reporters on how the #ActuallyAutistic community feels about the change or the impact felt.

Finally A$ does something to modify their mission — albeit lip service — and #ActuallyAutistic advocates and their impact are still NOT included in the stories.

Of course, A$ never addressed the negative culture, community bashing and hellacious stigma they prompted on #ActuallyAutistic people this past decade with their war to eradicate Autism. Also, no notes to this being the same culture Autistics are still suffering, battling and protesting today.

Pffft, and you know there’s no mention of A$ groupies (converted neurotypical parents) either, that actively claim “Autism” culture as their own, force their version of it down Autistics throats and then bash us for not wanting a “cure.”

This prompts some questions . . . 

  • Do many non-profit organizations use their money and power to actively go against their target demographic, like Autism Speaks does to #ActuallyAutistic?
  • How does a non-profit become this mighty so quickly with fundraising and legislators?
  • Where’s the money coming from and where’s it going?
  • Who profits the most from A$ donations? Which companies/organizations are receiving A$ money?
  • Better yet, this question: How the fuck did this organization become so powerful to silence us all?

Ahhh, let’s go back to the founders – Bob and Suzanne Wright.

Bob Wright was a former NBC executive, president and CEO from 1986 to 2001, and chairman and CEO from 2001 until he retired in 2007. 

Prior to NBC, he held several posts at General Electric in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, and served as GE’s vice chairman until he retired from that role in 2008.

Suzanne Wright was his wife. Both were grandparents to an Autistic grandson.

The Wrights’ founded the Autism Speaks organization, within a year became experts on Autism, and then merged with Autism Coalition for Research and Education in 2005, National Alliance for Autism Research in 2006 and Cure Autism Now in 2007.

This here is an attempt to follow the money and the power of The Autistic Silencers. (Or at least start get a visual of what #ActuallyAutistic are up against in their fight to be heard.)

Defining The Autistic Silencers as businesses/organizations/money/power connected to Autism Speaks that are complicit in silencing our #ActuallyAutistic voices. This is the beginning of this project– and the list below is not in anyway complete. More will be added as known.


#ActuallyAutistic Activists VS. The Autistic Silencers 

Bob_Wright_profile_photo

Starting with Bob Wright, immediately Autism Speaks is different than other grass-roots organizations. A$ was co-founded by a mighty powerful man in the media industry.

His wife, Suzanne Wright, and his views defined America’s understanding of Autism. Their dark-marketing of the invented Autistic apocalypse created a cult-like following of neurotypical parents that demand their views, beliefs, goals and identity were more important than the #ActuallyAutistic community.

These parents identified with the mission of battling/defeating Autism, identifying themselves as “Autism Families,” and demanding that their invented version of Autistic culture was correct. Even creating a fashion, beauty and lifestyle Autism market geared to non-Autistic parents of Autistic kids.

So here is the wall-of-power related to Bob Wright and A$ (so far) potentially blocking #ActuallyAutistic voices: 

This list is just the start. So far these are companies have direct connections to Bob Wright. These are the voices we’re trying to be louder than — at the very least. Are they suppressing our #ActuallyAutistic voices too? Who makes the most profit from our silence?


Here are a few . . .  this page is work in progress, but starting to see what we’re up against in mainstream media?
