The Spirit Squadron are proud to announce the beneficiary of this year's NWSL SG ACTS fundraiser will be the Autistic People of Color Fund. First created in June 2018, the Fund has given over $200,000 USD to individual autistic people of color since it was launched. They rely mostly on small donations from community members to survive.
About the Autistic POC Fund
"The Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color's Interdependence, Survival, and Empowerment practices redistributive justice and mutual aid by returning and sharing money directly to and with autistic people of color. We provide microgrants to Black, Brown, Native, Asian, and mixed-race people in the autistic community for survival, organizing, leisure and pleasure. We are committed to the principles of Disability Justice, including leadership by those most impacted, intersectionality, anti-capitalist politic, cross-movement solidarity, interdependence, collective access, and collective liberation. Our work is grounded in commitment to ending extractive economies and building and sustaining generative economies."
