Autistic People Need Representation on CA Healthcare Task Force

This petition had 257 supporters


The California Department of Managed Healthcare has announced the composition of its Autism Task Force.  As it currently stands, no autistic people are represented on the 18-person panel which will make key decisions affecting autistic people's healthcare. Moreover, the panel does include an anti-vaccine activist, a person who has made numerous statements dehumanizing autistic people, and two representatives from an organization which has consistently excluded autistic people from its leadership. Autistic people deserve to have a voice in manners that affect us directly, and the panel as currently composed completely fails to give us adequate representation.
