ACT Today! Put Autism in the Debates!


CONTACT THE CAMPAIGNS TO LET THEM KNOW WE WANT OUR 1 IN 88 IN THE DEBATES!

Dear Autism Advocate,

We had a significant presence at the first Presidential Debate at Denver University last week. We are going to have an even bigger presence at the next two debates to show the candidates how big the autism community is!



We need your help to make the autism community, and all of our issues, a squeaky wheel in this election season. For the next debate, we don't want just a mention of autism

We want the candidates to discuss a plan for leadership on increased funding for dedicated autism research and appropriate health insurance coverage for all Americans with autism. 

Here is How YOU Can Help:

1) SEND AN EMAIL.  Each issue receives a tally by each of the campaigns.  

EMAIL: You can send an email to the Obama Campaignhere and to the Romney Campaign here by filling out their web-forms. Short and sweet messages are fine or you can personalize them with a paragraph or two as to why this is important to you.


Example Email to cut & paste into web-form:

Our 1 in 88 can't wait!  Please put autism issues in the next debate and tell us how YOU will provide leadership and a plan for our community and address autism as the urgent public health crisis it has become.


2) USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO BREAK THROUGH TO THE CANDIDATES' CAMPAIGNS DIRECTLY!

We understand that there are other issues facing our country such as jobs, the economy, national security & the environment, but there is no reason that autism, which affects a minimum of 1 in 88 people across the United States, should not be a topic of national discussion.
