@SFdirewolf: if allies need to think of themselves as co-conspirators, they need to support the orgs that are already doing the work, like HEARD and @autselfadvocacy (I missed the first one, so sorry). Props to director @JustStimming (see their resources): autisticadvocacy.org/resources/
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble: #autistic and disabled people are the experts in their own lives! Imagine what could happen if even 1% of the money splashed all over #autism causes and orgs was given to the autistic people who know what to do with it to change #autistic lives for the better?
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @JHMarble recently took on Fiona Ma for spewing ableist crap all over the disability caucus at the recent DNC (WE LOVE YOU JOHN.)
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @JHMarble desperately wants radical young autistics to show him where he needs to push the political envelope! What is he missing?
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @SFdirewolf is giving props to #ActuallyAutistic Greta Thunberg and her lack of f***ks when it comes to doing what is right for the planet and humanity’s future.
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @SFdirewolf is out of patience with gatekeepers who are getting in the way of disability and civil rights justice. We need better leaders.
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @kriphopnation we need a change in the status quo! We need to support politicians like @RepMaxineWaters who actually do push back and do the right thing. Even when it hurts.
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @kriphopnation @RepMaxineWaters @MicaelaConnery to @SFdirewolf: what does good ally ship/co-conspiratorship look like?

Acknowledge what you don’t know! Find out more about what ableism is, in terms of everyday experiences and also systemically. Read up. Follow these panelists right here.
@SFdirewolf @autselfadvocacy @JustStimming @JHMarble @kriphopnation @RepMaxineWaters @MicaelaConnery …and provide material support. Show up to events. Buy the books and CDs. Connect with actual disabled people. Immerse yourself. Alice loves the people and the culture in the Disability movement and she thinks you will too.
