Mayor Sylvester Turner and City Council Member Amy Peck from the #Houston City Council will be presenting the Autism Awareness Month proclamation to #AdamFarris. Adam Farris will be speaking in regards to Autism Awareness, Disability Advocacy and Autism Advocacy on April 6th 2021 in front of the Houston City Council. Adam is doing this not only to raise awareness of autism but to bring awareness to others who have autism or other differing or unique abilities. If you are someone that has autism you can go and get that job, you can go and get that degree and you can go and do whatever you put your mind to. You just have to believe in yourself and meet your maximum potential.

transcript of Adam's Speech:
Good afternoon Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Houston city council. Thank you very much for having me..My name is Adam Farris I am a native Houstonian, who Advocates for Autism.. I came here today to speak about my autism advocacy in regards to World Autism Awareness Month Given that 1 in every 54 children have autism I feel that something needs to be done at the local level for autism awareness and advocacy. I work at a retail store and I see people With autism frequently being bullied because of their so-called disability.. I like to call it a unique ability by the way.
So what can we do at the local level? Inspire more people to not only know what the facts are about autism but to not judge by what they see and what they hear. I am calling on the Houston city council today to bring some more options for those individuals with autism. Many individuals don't have a place to go, have friends to see,
