Autism & Social Change

Updated: Feb 25


Many autistic people are wired to be globally conscious, with a strong sense of justice. . We notice injustices, wrongs and rights in childhood. . We ask questions our adults often don’t have answers to, or aren’t sure how to answer. . Often we find others feel confronted by the words we speak, the observations we share. . We are told everything is complex, with many layers. . That often, nothing is simple. . Yet we see and know and feel deep within . That caring for our planet . Respecting culture . Demonstrating kindness, compassion and empathy . Is simple. . Is black and white. . Is not complex. . We see people, places and things . In their truest, most authentic form. . Underneath the anger, the pain, the layers. . We see. . We know dishonesty . We understand personal incapacity, when people just ‘can’t’ . But we see and know and feel truth. . We cry for injustices . On behalf of the world . And we cry for victories . On behalf of the world . The pain is often too much . So we avoid the news . The comment sections . We shut down. . Then others receive us . As lacking empathy . Disconnected . Apathetic . In our own worlds. . Sometimes our own world . The one we believe in . The one we create . Is safer . Than the one . We all suffer within. . Make no mistake . You’ll see us in the frontlines . In the media . Marching in the streets . Waving banners . Writing . Singing and chanting . Writing policy . Advocating . Because we are connected . Here to create change. . . Kristy Forbes inTune Pathways
