Every March first we gather to keep vigil and remember the lives of people with disabilities who have been murdered by their families and caregivers. If you have the spoons, please consider joining this year’s virtual vigil being put on by UNC Asheville’s Disability Cultural Center and Office of Academic Accessibility.

An article co-authored by Jade, our board chair and webmaster, was recently published in the Winter 2021 issue of ASNC‘s (Autism Society of NC) Spectrum Magazine. The article, co-authored by Lea Crusen (an ASNC clinical professional), is about ways to help teach self-advocacy skills and how to be a better ally in supporting self-advocacy development. You can read the article here.
The Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) has put out a great visual easy-read and plain language set of fact sheets about the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you or someone you care about is in need of straight forward information about the vaccine- maybe one of these resources will be helpful?
