Event description

Description

Please join the Autism Society of Texas and other nonprofit groups, stakeholders, parents, and concerned advocates, as we spend the morning discussing legislative issues that impact individuals with autism, and their families. Following issues & advocacy training, we will have lunch. After lunch we will visit with legislators or their staff. There will also be a press conference in the afternoon. Lunch & t-shirt included with your registration.

PLEASE FILL THIS OUT FOR T-SHIRT SIZE & DIETARY RESTRICTIONS!

We need your t-shirt size & dietary restrictions! New this year! We will have Texas Autism Advocacy Day T-shirts that can be picked up at check in! We'd love to have everyone wear them! Please select your t-shirt size & let us know about any special dietary requirements here or at link above in all caps! *Register by 4/1 at midnight to guarantee t-shirt size.

No advocacy experience is required and we would love to have as many attendees as possible! During legislative visits, if you are not comfortable communicating with legislators or their staff we will assign you to a group with an appointed spokesperson.

We are also seeking sponsors and supporters! Please visit this page for details if you are a business or nonprofit! Thank you!
