We are proud and excited to announce the official launch of a fund for direct support, mutual aid, and reparations by/for autistic people of color!
We first created the Fund in June 2018 with support from the American Association of People with Disabilities Hearne Leadership Award, along with a portion of all royalties from sales of All the Weight of Our Dreams: On Living Racialized Autism. Since we launched the Fund, we have given nearly $20,000 to individual autistic people of color. We rely mostly on small donations from community members to survive. Sometimes donations as small as $5 can make a huge difference in what we can offer to people in need.
