Law & Justice

ASAN works on policies and laws that affect autistic people and people with other disabilities. There are laws that protect our rights as people with disabilities. We work to make sure these laws are enforced fairly and people have their rights respected. But the legal system is often not fair to disabled people, especially disabled people of color. As we fight for our rights, we must also fight to change the way the legal system treats people.
