The Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Advocacy, in partnership with University of Pittsburgh's Students for Disability Advocacy, will be hosting a film screening of Citizen Autistic on September 25th from 4PM - 7PM in William Pitt Union, Room 540, on the University of Pittsburgh's campus. Citizen Autistic offers an inside look at the activists on the frontline of the autism war - the fight for human rights and self-advocacy. Citizen Autistic seeks to expose the controversies in the autism community by giving voice to autistic activists and self-advocates. The screening is an opportunity to learn about the history of the Autism Rights Movement and get involved in the disability community. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, email cori@autisticpgh.org. 

The attached flyer contains all of the above information, plus a graphic from Citizen Autistic of a white person wearing a green hat and large noise-canceling headphones that are yellow with polka dots. They are wearing a light blue jacket, purple gloves, and carrying a lavender backpack. They hold a black sign with the words "I AM NOT A PUZZLE" in white above a blue puzzle piece in a red circle with a strike through it. Below, the words continue, "I AM A PERSON." The word "person" is in yellow and is larger than the other words on the sign, which are white.
