Action for Children Unethical Ad Campaign Alert

    1. Petition by

      The Autistic Self Advocacy Network

This action alert is designed to let the British Charity Action for Children know about the need to avoid unethical autism advertising in response to their recent television advertisements. E-mails sent through it will go to Action for Children, their supporter in Parliament, MP Hilary Armstrong and the British Fundraising Standards Board.

We provide a basic letter for you to use as an example, but if you have the time and ability, we encourage you to personalize it to reflect your own thoughts in order to show the breadth and passion of feeling that this issue brings in our community.
