Part of AuSM’s mission is ensuring that our laws and public policies support individuals and families living with autism. This is why AuSM is committed to helping your voice be heard at the Minnesota legislature as well as creating public policy by maintaining a presence on key committees, task forces, and organizations. Please act on alerts, letting decision-makers know that the Minnesota autism community is active, engaged and ready to speak out.

We invite you to apply to join the AuSM Advocacy Committee (AAC). The purpose of the AAC is to create a unified voice and to offer support and resources to advocates looking to effect positive change for the autism community. AAC is a committee of the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) Board of Directors. The role of the AAC is to examine legislative activity, make recommendations to the AuSM Board, and represent AuSM’s official policy positions in public forums. AAC Code of Conduct »
