This Autism Awareness Month event is being offered as a public service to increase awareness, understanding, and acceptance about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Linda Walder Fiddle, Founder and Executive Director of DJF, says: “We are presenting a free screening of this remarkable new film in order to promote community awareness and empathy for all people living with Autism and their families. It is a vital part of our mission to help create a world where individuals living with Autism are valued and respected for who they are, and ‘Loving Lampposts’ will inspire all who see it to look at individuals on the spectrum with new eyes.”
Ridgewood Councilman Paul Aronsohn, the founder and leader behind Ridgewood CAN, states: “This will be an important opportunity for our community to come together for a good film and a good cause. Through this program, and through so many other activities, The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation is promoting a much-needed conversation and a much better understanding of Autism.”
