Autistics Speaking Day is November 1. Check out the official blog: Autistic Speaking Day. They also have an FAQ and a list of participants for the 2011 event. If you’d like to participate, there is more information on the FAQ page.
You can also follow @AutisticsSpeak on Twitter.
If you’re not familiar with Autistics Speaking Day, then here is the post by Corina Becker at No Stereotypes Here that started it all.
And I will be participating both on this blog and at Raven’s Wing Poetry.
As you probably know, Autistics Speaking Day is tomorrow, November 1. Many of us on the spectrum have chosen this day to speak out instead of shut down, and The Coffee Klatch will be hosting a 24-Hour Chat on TweetChat tomorrow for Autistics Speaking Day. Also, other events and stuff may be happening too: feel free to check out the Autistics Speaking Day event page on Facebook for more info.
And I will be doing what I do best — poetry. I will be sharing some new poems I have written just for Autistics Speaking Day on here and Raven’s Wing Poetry, as well as sharing some other poems I’ve written in the past. I will post a list tomorrow of all of the poems here as well (so you don’t have to go a’diggin’) as well as Tweeting and posting on FB as much as possible. I look forward to joining everyone speaking out tomorrow in the Interwebs and Blogosphere and am honored to be part of such an event. Be LOUD and be PROUD on November 1!
