Hello friends, musicians, allies and fellow autistics:
While my life has been busy the last few weeks due to life changes, I have missed some changing culture at one of our longstanding benefactors. I thank a fellow autistic for warning me about this. Over the past month or so, some reviews have been circulating about a toxic workplace, poor culture, sexism, homophobia, autism negativity and ableism beginning to permeate what was once a respectable charity. I will not post those reviews in text here but I will link them to investigate further. As of this moment, Chiptunes4Autism will NO LONGER be sending any monetary funds to this organization. I urge them to change course and investigate these claims. If you are one of our supporters who has funded them on your own dime, you may want to do some research. Over the last month, this organization has been rapidly devolving. In the meantime, we will continue to support our other two longtime benefactors – Autistic Self Advocacy Network and Rise Above the Disorder (formerly Anxiety Gaming, aka YouAreRad,org!)
I have posted links below of the incidents in question. In my opinion, nP’s response to them has been wholly substandard. Thank you all for your continued support!
