This September, the Autism Society knows that the importance of the 2020 U.S. election cannot be understated, no matter which side of the isle you’re on. That’s why our September 2020 Toolkit focuses on the initiation of our voter registration campaign, designed to encourage eligible individuals in the disability community to vote in the upcoming election.

Our goal this month is to provide the autism community with the resources necessary to navigate the 2020 Election year in the wake of COVID-19. Additionally, the September toolkit provides more back-to-school resources for various COVID-19 education models, as well as parent checklists.
