MISSION

Our mission is to enable and empower the Autistic and Neurodivergent community through the principles of Disability Justice; to shift the narrative of disability through relationships, education, and advocacy; and to support self-determination and access to employment, transportation, housing, mental health services, and food security.

We believe in listening to, centering, and amplifying Autistic and other neurodivergent voices. The lived experiences of individuals on the spectrum are valid, legitimate, and positions of expertise.

We believe all beings are interdependent and that a person's value is inherent in their existence.

We embrace neurodivergence and understand that all identities are varied, complex, and intersectional.

 

We are committed to actively addressing racial and socioeconomic disparities in access to opportunities and outcomes.
