Sharing Your Story for a Political Purpose

Telling your story is a great way to make a difference — and because it’s your story, there’s no one better to tell it! Our stories are powerful political tools, and we can use them to make real change. Hearing a real person talk about a policy problem gives policymakers a name and face to remember. Make sure they remember your story — and make the changes you want — with our toolkit, “Sharing Your Story For a Political Purpose.”

This toolkit was made by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). It helps you brainstorm the most important parts of what you want to say, and make a plan to use your story to create policy change. It explains how to share your story in different places, like:

  • Town halls
  • Legislative hearings
  • Public comments on regulations
  • Op-eds and letters to the editor
  • Petitions

The toolkit is available in two versions:
