3rd annual Autistic Community Summit registration and submissions open
When you’re autistic, fitting into public spaces, meeting personal needs, and advocating for change can be challenging. Join AuSM for the third annual Autistic Community Summit at Union Depot in Saint Paul on Sept. 19. This event will provide a safe space where autistics can come together to network, learn, and get inspired. Hear from autistic voices on topics including community building, self-care, mental health, parenting, executive functioning, and more. Collect resources from the AuSM Bookstore and visit with exhibitors who support adults on the spectrum.
Note: due to COVID-19, this event may move to a virtual platform. AuSM is closely monitoring state and federal guidelines to ensure the safety of our community.
