ASAN-PDX is a group that is ONLY for persons on the autistic spectrum who are 18+ and are either medically or self-diagnosed. Thank you for your understanding. ASAN-PDX is working to promote civil rights, services, supports, education, public understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity. We oppose the causation/cure agenda, pseudo-science, demonization and unethical and offensive portrayals of Autistic people. Please note that this group no longer sponsors social activities; if that is what you are interested in, please visit Dorks on Parade, which is a separate social group for autistic adults founded by ASAN-PDX's Chapter Lead.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
