A vast field of red and white poppies on a clear, sunny day
 
Dear friends,
 
It’s been a busy few weeks, so let’s get caught up on what we’ve been up to. Last month we had our 7th annual Disability Day of Mourning, with vigils held at 50 sites across 3 countries alongside our livestreamed virtual vigil. The annual vigils are an important part of our community-building work, and we’re grateful to everyone who volunteered to coordinate a local vigil and all those who attended.

 
All this month, we’re celebrating another important time for our community: Autism Acceptance Month. During Autism Acceptance Month, we focus on sharing positive, respectful, and accurate information about autism and autistic people. You can visit AutismAcceptanceMonth.org to learn more, and click here to check out some new merch designs we’ve created for this year’s celebration that you can proudly display.

 
Finally, we still have a job opening for the position of Programs Coordinator here at ASAN. The Programs Coordinator helps make events like the Day of Mourning vigils and Autism Acceptance Month possible, and we actively encourage people of color, people from low-income backgrounds, and people from the LGBTQ community to submit applications to join our growing team.

Sincerely,

Zoe Gross
Director of Operations 
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
