I Stand With Henry2016-11-10T10:11:11-05:00

In 2012 Henry faced disability based discrimination when he was denied entry to the middle school across the street from his home. Then 12 year old Henry started “I STAND WITH HENRY” to take action against the segregation and low expectations he encountered and to empower others to stand together and demand full access to equal education in their neighborhoods. Henry’s international social media campaign garnered tens of thousands of supporters and he was allowed entry into his neighborhood school after months of negotiation. Henry went on to excel not only in General Education but in Advanced Honors and Gifted classes.He was the 2013 Recipient of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network’s Award for Service to the Self-Advocacy Movement.
