To Sponsors of The Savage Nation Radio Show, Syndicate of Talk Radio Networks, and
sponsors of Talk Radio Networks programming:
We, organizations representing people with disabilities, family members, professionals
and other concerned citizens, are calling upon you to withdraw support for Talk Radio
Networks in response to the outrageous comments by TRN personality Michael Alan
Weiner, also known as Michael Savage.
On July 16th, Weiner announced:
The Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) is a non profit organization run by and for autistic people. Our leadership is made up entirely of self-advocates on the autism spectrum. We also have members from other neurodiverse groups as well as neurotypical family members, professionals, educators and friends. ASAN was created to improve the representation of the autistic community in public policy discussions as well as to advance the autistic culture movement. We work to provide support and services to individuals on the autism spectrum while educating policymakers and communities about the autism spectrum
