Red and orange-leafed trees line a path
 
Dear friends, 

 

In our last newsletter, we urged you to take action against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Together, we have kept that fight going all through September. Earlier this month, we sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee about our grave concerns about Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court – specifically, his proven record of supporting the right to strip disabled people of their self-determination and bodily autonomy. Since we sent that letter, many more horrifying elements of Judge Kavanaugh’s past have come to light. Despite this, the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted in favor of moving Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Senate floor for a vote – and that’s exactly where we’ll #StopKavanaugh. 

 

We also released a statement opposing this Administration’s proposed “Public Charge” regulation, which discriminates against disabled and low-income immigrants and makes pathways to American citizenship contingent upon wealth and the absence of disability. 

 

Finally, we’ve just announced the first of this year’s gala award recipients: DJ Savarese, writer and co-producer of the documentary Deej. Our annual gala will be held November 15th at The Hamilton in Washington, D.C., and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate self-advocacy, self-advocates, and the continued triumphs made possible by our community. 

 

Sincerely, 
Zoe GrossDirector of OperationsAutistic Self Advocacy Network
