About Us

Who are we

 Advocates For Autism started as a campus  organization at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in August of 2016. Now as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are dedicated to promote people with autism, fundraising for events, and raising awareness throughout the community. Our focus is education and awareness. We are unable to directly assist with school related issues you may have with your child, but we can point you in the right direction.
