How to disrupt “Light It Up Blue”:

1. Light it up ORANGE. 

2. “Autism Speaks does not speak for me” is always a thought-provoking statement. 

3. Engage in conversation with A$ supporters! Share your perspective as an actual autistic, and explain why A$ is a bad organization. 

4. Support the ARC. 

5. Denounce puzzle pieces.

6. Be prepared for pushback, and try not to lose it. If you get overwhelmed, leave the conversation for a while and stim. You can return later.
