Autism Research for Us: Creating an agenda led by the autistic community
ASAN and the Policy and Analytics Center (PAC), based at A.J. Drexel Autism Institute at Drexel University, will hold a symposium about autism research. Autistic people will tell researchers what we want and need from future research. Together we will create a plan for research and share it with everyone. Autistic people will lead the plan. We will talk about how we do research.
We will focus on participatory research. Participatory research is when the autistic community and researchers work together to design, do, and share research. We will also look at research led by autistic people. We especially want to hear from multiply marginalized autistic people, including:
• Autistic people of color;
• Non-speaking autistic people (both full time and part time);
• Autistic people who are LGBTQ+. LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities; and
• Autistic people with intellectual disabilities.

This two-day workshop hosted by the National Science Policy Network DEI Committee is proud to have Andrew Fang and Katharine Mach discuss their respective areas of expertise on environmental justice science and policies. Adriana Bankston will be teaching attendees how to write science-policy position papers or op-eds.
Environmental justice topics include:
Displacement, especially of BIPOC, low-income, LGBTQ communities (i.e. what it does to housing and education availability and accessibility)
Consequences to public health (i.e. exposure to toxic chemicals, mental health)
How policies can widen the disparity gaps in marginalized communities (i.e. policies being implemented from a privileged lens, failure to provide proper aid/distribute funds appropriately)
Food security (i.e. how these disasters change landscapes)
