Ari Ne'eman Appointed to the National Council on Disability
Written by Savannah Nicole Logsdon
Good News for the Autism community, and for the cross disability movement as a whole. Ari Ne'eman has been announced as one of President Obama's latest Presidential Appointees. He is currently awaiting confirmation by the senate for a position on the National Council on Disability. You can read the press release on the White House website here, as well as the names and Bios of other Appointees.
This is a big step forward for the Autism Community, particularly (but not exclusively) for the Neurodiversity movement. Ari has been pushing for the needs- and rights- of the Autistic community for years, and to have him appointed to the NCD is certainly the next move in his unrelenting efforts to promote our cause. He has also been involved in cross-disability efforts, an important thing to keep in mind.
