The Green Our Vaccines Rally, lead by celebrities Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey and sponsored by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Generation Rescue, HEAL Foundation and Moms Against Mercury, will be held on June 4 in Washington, D.C.. The event will begin with a march through the streets of the nation's capitol and conclude at a rally site in front of the Capitol Building. As stated on the rally website, the purpose of the event is to demand a reassessment of the mandatory childhood vaccine schedule. The organizers believe children are receiving “too many, too soon.” They feel vaccines are too toxic and they would like all toxins eliminated from children's vaccines. They believe a safer vaccine supply and schedule is possible. Visit the rally website here.
Autism Speaks is committed to actively supporting research that explores all possible factors in the etiology (cause) of autism. We are working diligently with high ranking officials in our government to establish world class programs in vaccine safety research that encompass both basic and clinical science. We believe this to be the most effective course of action toward creating meaningful change.
