Example Letter Sent By AmericanBadassAdvocates to Sponsors

Hi,

I’m Eve Hinson, Autistic Founder of AmericanBadassAdvocates.org. Our goal is peer-led initiatives for neurodiversity.

The past two years the focus has been on #TheReal5150 campaign to break institutionalized stigma of severe mental illness — specifically against the brand 51Fifty Energy Drink “Live the Madness.” https://americanbadassadvocates.org/thereal5150-origin/

That social media protest campaign inspired and launched AmericanBadassAdvocates.org last year.

Now we’re joining the Autistic Civil Rights movement and (always the plan) #BoycottAutismSpeaks and seeking support in sharing facts and real Autistic voices.

Please discontinue your donation support of Autism speaks, and support authentic #AutisticVoice. Actual Autistics #BoycottAutismSpeaks. #REDinstead

 Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Eve Hinson

Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement

In 2005 Autism Speaks was founded to find a “cure” for Autism. The organization launched a massive wave of Fear Porn-styled advertising to raise an incredible amount of money in a very short amount of time.

#fact | Autism is a brain neurotype – not a disease. It can’t be cured. #AutisticandProud

#fact | The only “cure” for Autism is a genetic-marker test during pregnancy.  This would result in the same “cure” society has for Down Syndrome: Abortion. This will lead to Autistic Genocide. #WeAreWorthy #NotBetterDeadThanDisabled

#fact | The only other “cure” for Autism would be complete human extinction.

#fact | The largest portion of Autism Speaks donations were funneled into research. Only 4% went to supporting existing Autistic children and families. Autism Speaks, until October 2016, main goal was genocide. Now the language has been changed to “solutions.” #supportnotcure

#fact | Autism Speaks refuses Autistics to participate in leadership and have zero Autistics on their board. #nothingaboutuswithoutus

This video is an attempt to more clearly portray and explain through authentic Autistic Voices the true history of our people in the shadow of the Autism Speaks machine.
