BAS Statement about Autism Speaks Board Appointments

 

Recently, Autism Speaks announced the appointment of three new individuals to their Board of Directors. Two of these individuals, Valerie Paradiz and Stephen Shore, are Autistic adults. While bringing Autistic people onto the board is a step in the right direction the politics of the organization remain unchanged and therefore our opposition to it will not waver. Until they stop researching cure, and spreading fear and hatred of Autistic people they are still everything that we stand against.
