Whether you are a self-advocate with a long history of involvement in the Autistic community, or a family member or friend who simply wants to learn more about autism and discover how you can be a helpful ally, there are several ways that you can get involved with ASAN’s advocacy activities.
Regardless of whether you live in an area with an ASAN local chapter, you can support us by becoming an ASAN member through online registration. As a member, you will receive our newsletter, advocacy alerts, and additional members-only materials. Our membership is open both to Autistics and to non-autistic allies.
We have always welcomed and given a meaningful role to volunteers in our work to empower the Autistic community. Our volunteer opportunities can include helping with local chapter projects, internships at our DC office, taking part in online planning committees, or other online activities such as writing and research.
Please consider making a contribution to support ASAN’s work! Your donation helps us to advance the disability rights movement and to better serve the Autistic community. Gifts to ASAN are tax-deductible in the United States and can be made securely online.
