ASAN is excited to announce the generous donation made by Nicole Cliffe to fund ASAN’s Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) program over the next ten years.
Every year at ACI, we bring autistic college students from around the country to Washington D.C. in order to learn about advocacy and systems change. The week of trainings culminates in a Hill Day, where participants meet with their Senators’ and Representatives’ offices to discuss policies important to the autistic community. ACI participants then use the skills they have developed to create change in their colleges and communities. ASAN continues to provide advice and support to alumni as they pursue their advocacy and leadership goals.
Nicole Cliffe’s generous donation allows us to continue to empower and support the next generation of autistic leaders. This donation ensures that ACI offers a meaningful learning experience for years to come, and allows us to expand in order to support even more autistic youth. We at ASAN are already looking forward to our 2019 ACI program! Applications for ACI will be released in January. Watch our social media and email blasts to learn more and apply next year!
