Autistic Self-Advocacy Network launches "Listen Up," first of two PSA's created for Autism Acceptance Month

From ASAN:

Dear Friends,
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Listen Up, the first of two public service announcements that we've created for Autism Acceptance Month. Listen Up features Henry Frost, Amy Sequenzia, and Kevin Barrett telling the world that the Autistic community can speak for itself.
Listen Up is on YouTube right now. We encourage you to watch it, share it, and help us make it go viral. If you want to see Listen Up on television, you can email acceptance@autisticadvocacy.org or visit the Autism Acceptance Month website for detailed information and instructions.
Help us change the national conversation on autism from one that largely occurs without autistic people to a conversation that frames our voices as central. Acceptance is an action, as we've been saying all month, and now it's time for us to take action and reclaim our seat at the table.
We're very excited about Listen Up, about autism acceptance, and about the prospect of seeing our PSA aired on television and virally online. So listen up! Together, we can change the national conversation on autism!
