Content: ableist and racist torture of disabled people
In the USA, a federal appeals court has overturned the Food and Drug Administration’s ban on electric skin shock devices used on children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Autistics United Canada joins disabled activists and organizations around the world in strongly condemning this decision and calling on the FDA to enact a new ban.
4) Use the script and list of contact information that AuTeach has made to urge US organizations to condemn the decision. You can also use the script to write to other organizations and representatives.
5) Educate yourself and others about the Judge Rotenberg Center and how the use of shock devices for behavioural modification harms disabled people, particularly disabled people of colour.
