[Trigger warnings: brief description of child abuse, torture]
Autistics, allies, disability advocates, and disability activists, State Representative Sanchez of Massachusetts has expressed approval of the Judge Rotenberg Center. He has brushed off attempts to question his support of the torture of children on American soil. We are invading his Facebook page tonight. Please participate. People with our labels are suffering on his watch. Innocent kids are shocked until their skin burns. He thinks this is a good idea. Show up. Be civil. Do not make threats. Post your own sentiments or links. Post late at night into the early morning hours. We want him to wake up to this. We want people to see it before his staff can take it down. Please signal boost this message. I hope to see you there.
I find it immensely frustrating when I’m made to feel guilty for not wanting to do advocacy via a site that’s at best a confusing sensory overload for me (see this Tumblr thread), and at worst a privacy risk due to permissions that aren’t always what they seem. (Seriously, what’s the use of being able to compartmentalize connections into groups if you can’t specify who can see what for a lot of things?)
For those who find Twitter easier to handle (between the simpler interface, the abundance of non-web-based clients, the ability to have multiple accounts without violating the TOS, and the lack of verifiable-name requirement), his Twitter name is ‘jeffrey_sanchez’. And his web site, with other means of contact listed as well (albeit an inaccessible CAPTCHA on the e-mail form… but the direct e-mail address is listed on the page as a workaround), is http://www.jeffreysanchez.org/.
Comments: relevant & important.
