Calls to Action

Memorial Day

Lorri Unumb, vice president of state government affairs for Autism Speaks, travels the country advocating for families and individuals facing the challenges of autism. This is her ongoing series "On The Road For Autism Reform."

I’m writing from my backyard where I’ve been sitting in the warm South Carolina sunshine trying not to think about work on Memorial Day.  I am unsuccessful. The two subjects – work and Memorial Day – are inextricably intertwined for me. 

If anyone knows how hectic life can get – WE DO! That’s why we have created the Autism Speaks Weekly Whirl to fill you in on all of the highlights of the week! The last thing we want is for you to be left out of the loop! Please share with friends and family to spread the word about all of the exciting things going on in the autism community. Keep in mind, these updates aren’t limited to Autism Speaks — we will be featuring news from across the community.
