**New! Click here to view the Executive Summary of the National Town Hall!
On November 13th, 2009, Americans from across the country came together to create a policy agenda for addressing the needs of adults with autism. Over 1,000 people including caregivers, advocates, elected officials, family members, and adults with autism, participated in the discussion and made recommendations on this important issue. The event was orchestrated from a central hub in Chicago where a national discussion took place via webcast from remote locations, called satellite sites. With the unprecedented scale and diversity of the AFAA National Town Meeting, we hope to attract attention to the issue and build momentum behind the policy agenda.
