In addition to making richly scented candles and high-performance candles as a work project Autism Candles exists to advocate for autism. This includes public education about autism, advocating about inclusion, seeking social justice, quality social services, and community jobs. Bold plans like the nation-wide and regional public relations plan of “Area Includes” are also authored by Autism Candles. Community and culture alike have yet to take full advantage of the creative talents of the autism and developmental disability communities. Opportunities and access for us to participate will immeasurably benefit this and future generations because this inclusion and equality is something that everyone deserves. The measure of our society’s success is determined by whether it treats everyone as full and valued members.
