A MESSAGE FROM AANE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ON THE SITUATION IN THE U.S.

I want to acknowledge how painful and heartbreaking the murder of George Floyd and the surrounding events have been for our nation. It is a profoundly distressing reminder to all of us of the deep racism that pervades our country. At AANE, we know many in our community feel deeply about issues of social justice. For those who are members of both the black community and the autism community, we see the compounded risk you face every day. For many who were already feeling anxious and isolated, we understand how this intensifies the difficulties you are experiencing. There is no place for hate in our community. We are committed to creating a world where those of every race and difference are accepted, and everyone is seen as an equal member of our society.
