Write Letters to Congress

The political landscape is always changing and there are always new bills in congress that affect the autism community, either positively or negatively. Please contact us to see what current legislation is pending and we will send you sample letters that you can mail to your congressperson.

Be Creative!

People have called us to offer their band for fundraisers, their bowling alleys for free events, their staff for fundraising helpers, and more! Contact us if you have other ideas about how your time, talents or resources may be used to benefit people with autism. Thank you for your contribution in whatever form it may take.
