Kevin's campaign seeks national and global legislation to prevent bullying. Ricky Gervais says: "Please support Kevin Healey’s campaign. Bullying has to stop." Statistics suggest 83% of autism kids are bullied (NAS survey.) This prevalence remains high for for older kids/adults with around 80% receiving verbal abuse. No-one deserves to be bullied. I'm 38 years old with Autism. I have been bullied on many levels, both cyber and physical, and have received death threats. I want to see laws changed both at home and abroad because people with Autism are vulnerable and therefore at greater risk of bullying. Please help us stop this awful harassment. Contact your MP or relevant government minster today, so that we can get the laws changed.

Rt Hon Lynne Featherstone MP
I/We call on both National and International governments to make efforts to change current laws or introduce new legislation to prevent bullies carrying out harassment of all types against people with autism spectrum disorders.
Current laws are seriously in omission as many recent events and surveys have shown. New legislation is deemed necessary for the protection of vulnerable autistic children and adults
