Autistic Rights Together 'ART'
is a non profit organisation consisting of Autistic people and like minded NT's (Neurotypicals) who passionately believe in the empowerment of Autistic people to achieve equality and respect in modern day society.
We exist to provide true advocacy for the Autistic Community, by representing the all too often forgotten children, adolescents and adults on the Autistic Spectrum who live under the negative and shameful stigma which exists in society today. A stigma driven by the search for a cure, for the elimination of Autism, allowing for blatant and cruel experimentation and dehumanisation which often goes unchallenged by so many prominent Autism organisations and charities.
We exist to give Autistic people a voice, a meaningful input into the decisions made by the powers that be in regard to the future of those who live on the Autistic Spectrum.
For too long Autistic people have been excluded and ignored, we say no more, no more about us without us!
We hope to provide a platform for change, to be representative of the Autistic People who desperately crave the chance to be given the opportunity to be heard.
We hope to educate society at every level, to change the public perception of Autism from one of fear and negativity to one of Acceptance, empowerment and true inclusion.
