Non-autistic people can also become members of the association. These members are called supporting members. They are not all allowed to vote at the meetings when something is decided or someone is elected. The majority must always be autistic. This is important because only autistic people themselves can really understand other autistic people.
All members of the association work together to develop an autistic-friendly environment. Some of the members actively participate in the team. Others donate something. And still others simply want to make it known with their name that they like what the association is doing. But the goal is the same for all of them. This is independent of how they participate, whether they are autistic or non-autistic.
Supporting members are also accepted!
Our non-profit association is a provider of child and youth welfare, education and upbringing, science and research as well as welfare, which is run by a 2/3 majority of autistic people for autistic people. This means that the autistic members have full voting rights. Up to 1/3 of the voting members can be non-autistic. All others are accepted as supporting members. There is also the possibility to decide in principle for a supporting membership.
Whoever feels connected to our association, even if not necessarily as an autistic person, e.g. because the concepts, models and projects are supported, is welcome to request a membership application under: info[at]white-unicorn.org!
