FEDERAL

The Autism Society of Greater Akron (ASGA) advocates for people living with autism on the local, state and federal levels. As an affiliate of the Autism Society of America, ASGA is part of a nationwide network that works to mobilize our grassroots network to affect laws and regulations that improve the quality of life for individuals with autism and other disabilities.

Each year, we travel to Capitol Hill to advocate for laws that positively impact everything from education to Medicaid, to healthcare. Our national organization leads this effort through the Ignite for Autism campaign. Get involved, including signing up for advocacy alerts, so you can make your voice heard!

 

STATE ISSUES

ASGA works with the Autism Society of Ohio (ASO) – the coalition of the Ohio affiliates of the Autism Society of America – on state-wide advocacy initiatives. Priorities are determined each year through the Board of Directors and an Advocacy Committee made up of individuals from across the state.
