Values We Live By
Here at Autistics Anonymous, we take seriously the work we are doing to uplift and support the autistic community. If an event doesn't reflect what we believe, we won't consider it! If you share our values, we'd love to work with you!
Autistics are Inherently Capable
We deeply believe that unlike many stereotypes and media portrayals, autistic individuals are inherently capable and valuable. Autistic people can have careers, families, friends, and other "typical" experiences. Autistics don't need a cure or training to "pass" as neurotypical.
We Believe in Giving Back
10% of each sale goes directly back into our local autism community. Currently, this is taking the form of school supplies for autism programs at educational institutions! When you support Autistics Anonymous, you're also supporting historically under-funded classrooms!
All Are Welcome Here
Autistics Anonymous takes social responsibility seriously! We proudly support our BIPOC, LGBTQ+, veterans, and disabled communities and recognize the intersectionality of identity. It's not "woke," it's human compassion. We do not tolerate racism, homophobia, ableism, or discrimination of any kind.
Authenticity is the Best Lipstick
We don't want to be anyone but who we are, and we encourage others to do the same. Authenticity is what makes our work so powerful. We will come as we are (and sometimes that's in our favorite Pokémon hoodie!) and focus on creating an environment of safety for all of those willing to learn.
