Putting The 'U' in Advocacy

Michelle Todd is President of the University of Minnesota Autism Speaks U chapter and has a 17-year-old brother on the autism spectrum. Last spring, she participated in a webinar covering Autism Speaks’ mission, including Advocacy.  During the webinar, she discovered the Advocacy department was offering summer internships and that Shelley Hendrix, the director of Grassroots Development, lives in Baton Rouge, LA where she was headed. She applied immediately for the position.
