Police Autism Community Trainings (PACT), a Kentucky based non-profit organization aimed at advocating and raising awareness about autism in the community, has a variety of relevant resources on their website. Their main mission is to help train first responders on how to better support autistic individuals, but the site includes resources that explain racism, racial equality, Black Lives Matter and protesting. The resources include Social Stories, videos, one-page tip sheets and training slides that can be helpful for explaining and talking to those you support about these sensitive topics.
