We’re proud to announce the release of our new and improved membership options! These monthly membership plans come with special perks, along with a membership-exclusive supplement to the ASAN newsletter, and opportunities for merch featuring our exclusive new design.

Each tier is named after a special interest shared by some autistic people, in a celebration of autistic culture. If you’ve been considering making a regular donation, this is a way to do so and get something in return.

Your donations support our policy work, our Easy Read toolkits, projects such as The Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) Leadership Academy, autism acceptance resources like Welcome to the Autistic Community, and so much more!

Join us as a member!

Obtaining a membership is a great way to support our work! Join our membership community and learn more about the goings-on at ASAN. We have scholarships available for self-advocates as needed. If you need a scholarship membership, please contact Jean at jwinegardner@autisticadvocacy.org.

To make a one-time donation, or to make a recurring annual or monthly donation without signing up as a member, go here.

Our 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 the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. 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!
