According to charitynavigator.com, Autism Speaks earns 1 of 4 stars for their financial expenditures. "We believe that those spending less than a third of their budget on program expenses are simply not living up to their missions." "Our data shows that 7 out of 10 charities we've evaluated spend at least 75% of their budget on the programs and services they exist to provide. And 9 out of 10 spend at least 65%." - charitynavigator.com
That puts Autism Speaks in the bottom 10 unethical percent @61.2 percent.
When Autism Speaks routinely dehumanizes Autistic people for personal gain,
silence is NOT an option. Speak up or be complicit.
