Lei Wiley-Mydske, Co-Founder of Ed Wiley Autism Acceptance Lending Library:

A few years ago, if I said I was boycotting Autism Speaks, people would think I was nuts…..and they did! I am glad we are getting more understanding in mainstream circles. I have seen a lot of people recognizing Autism Speaks and how it actually works against the Autistic community.

Have you seen the film “Citizen Autistic”? It’s free on Hulu now and SO good. It is a documentary about the Autistic self advocacy movement to protest these types of harmful messages from Autism Speaks.

In a few weeks, I am going to do another live tweet event with 30 Days of Autism: Leah Kelley and BAS of the film. We have previously done the A$ film Sounding the Alarm and Vectors of Autism, which is a documentary about Laura Nagle, an Autistic adult.
