ASAN’s Second PSA for Autism Acceptance Month is now out! Listen Up (Katie) features Katie Miller, ASAN Board member, speaking for herself. 

I’m autistic. I’m not a tragic figure. I’m not broken. I work. I’m happy. I love my family. I’m an artist. I grew up. I like most people! But… some people, I dislike. Especially people who say they speak for me. Because they don’t. I can speak for myself. So let’s talk. We may even become friends.

This video, since it does contain Katie verbally speaking, has captions available. If you cannot see them, click through to the video’s youtube address.

We’re asking for your help to create enough buzz and pressure across social media to get both of our PSAs on air for Autism Acceptance Month. Watch it, share it, and help us make it go viral. If you want to see our PSAs on television, you can email acceptance@autisticadvocacy.org or visit the Autism Acceptance Month website for detailed information and instructions. This is your chance to help us spread the message of autism acceptance nationally, and we need every one of you to contribute. 

Help us change the national conversation on autism from one that largely occurs without autistic people to a conversation that frames our voices as central. Acceptance is an action, as we’ve been saying all month, and now it’s time for us to take action and reclaim our seat at the table.

We’re very excited about our PSAs, about autism acceptance, and about the prospect of seeing our messages aired on television and virally online. So listen up! Together, we can change the national conversation on autism!
