Hi everyone!

Just wondering if anyone was going to participate in any of the Autism Speaks Florida events?

I'm for sure going to the Broward walk, but other than that, who knows?

and why would I want to participate in the events put on by an organization who thinks that the world would be better off if I did not exist?

Its a tough subject.. parents mean well and want the best for their kids and will support autism speaks because it is an autism charity. People who donate to autism speaks dont really know the autistic community is very much against them.

I'm trying hard to get the company I work for to change their mind about sending a team to the Autism Speaks Walk. I'm not getting anywhere.

I wish I had an alternative event to offer. :-/

I meant I'm trying to get them to change their mind and NOT send a team. :-/
