Mission
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which autistic people enjoy equal access, rights, and opportunities. We work to empower autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community, and seek to organize the autistic community to ensure our voices are heard in the national conversation about us. Nothing About Us, Without Us!
Program Description
Our activities include public policy advocacy, the development of Autistic cultural activities, and leadership trainings for autistic self-advocates. We provide information about autism, disability rights, and systems change to the public through a number of different educational, cultural, and advocacy related projects.

Autistic Scholars Fellowship - The ASAN Autistic Scholars Fellowship program, designed to advance campus leadership, provides 4 to 6 autistic students a one-time, $5,000 tuition scholarship each to create systems change on their college campuses.
