Fighting for Fairness: A Toolkit About Discrimination
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network made this toolkit for self-advocates to learn about discrimination. Fighting for Fairness: it starts with you! provides easy-to-understand explanations of different forms of discrimination.
This toolkit will explain:
- Respectful ways to learn about new people, like their names and pronouns
- How stereotypes hurt people, and how to avoid them
- How society, and individual people, discriminate against many different groups
- The importance of listening to people about discrimination
The Easy Read version uses pictures along with large text, and has more white space.

There is also a discussion guide. You can use the guide with self-advocacy groups, or you can talk with friends or family. The guide has questions that will help you think more about systemic inequality and fighting for fairness.
