Navigating Race & Autism: Black Mothers’ Advocacy for Kids on the Spectrum

Join Drexel Alumni on Wednesday, April 28th, from 7:00PM-8:00PM EST via Zoom!

Today, we know more about Autism than ever, and about the systemic racism that has been a part of our country for centuries. To be both Autistic and Black in America today presents unique challenges that must not be underestimated.

During this informative session, Elizabeth Hassrick of the AJ Drexel Autism Institute will share an overview of some of Drexel’s current work in this area, alongside Elizabeth Morgan, PhD Candidate at UC Davis, who will present her work in constructing portrait narratives of seven Black mothers of children on the Autism spectrum. She will explore how these mothers navigate service delivery systems, advocate for their children, and support other parents.
