EUCAP project to fight violence against autistic people

The European Council of Autistic People, of which we are affiliated, recently announced that it has received funding from the European Women’s Lobby to develop a 3-month project on violence against autistic people, in particular autistic women and girls. This project will lead to a survey on experiences of violence in autistic people, where the results will enable capacity building for advocacy on this issue. EUCAP will also open the initiative “A story beyond violence: collecting texts” so that autistic people, who wish to write their stories on this issue, can do so. You can find more information on the links below and see the preliminary results of the survey on the video above.
