What We Do
Verge of Independence Project
At the heart of what we do, the Verge of Independence Project: Multimedia Autism Advocacy (VIP), a grassroots progressive change initiative, uses engaging and informative multimedia to promote the independence, self-advocacy, and social confidence of autistic young adults. With diversity, equity, equality, and inclusion as its bedrock, VIP facilitates workshops both in-person and virtually and collaborates with other organizations, championing our cause to educate and train community members on the spectrum for creating solutions in addressing real-world issues. Moreover, the Verge of Independence Project multimedia website is a brave space designed to help young adults on the autism spectrum and those who support them amplify their unique voices.
