The 2011 legislative session for the Virginia General Assembly began on January 12. The Autism Society, Central VA will periodically send out action alerts for issues that may be of interest to individuals with autism and their families. When you receive an action alert, it is important to respond promptly as legislation moves quickly through the General Assembly.
It is essential that families contact their legislators about legislation that is of concern to you and your family. Legislators want to hear from their constituents. Tell them your story and what impact their decision will have on your family or loved one. You can find out who your legislators are and their contact information here: http://conview.state.va.us/whosmy.nsf/main?openform
We encourage families to join us in the following opportunities to advocate for the needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders on Jan. 13 and Jan. 17.
