Actor Orlando Jones has joined the #Activate4Autism movement calling people to:
- Speak out against bullying
- Speak up when something happens
- Speak out for inclusion
Orlando’s on screen charisma, integrity and wit are the perfect combination for delivering a message that people will listen to and act upon. He’s a strong voice on so many pop-culture platforms in film, television and digital media.
Did you see him as “Captain Frank Irving” on Sleepy Hollow? Or how about as “Mr. Nancy (aka the god Anansi) in the television version of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods? Or maybe it was his Comedy Central special in Johannesburg, South Africa? My point is he’s doing work that’s interesting, provocative and gets attention. And, as MTV calls him, this “King of Fandoms” engages with audiences in ways that can transform their thinking about marginalized and stereotyped groups, including those on the autism spectrum.
His #Activate4Autism message continues…
Yes, Orlando, yes! He makes me believe we can demand a world that believes:
- We’re all special
- We’re all cool
- We’re all interesting
- We all have the same rights!
May we ALL live long (without labels and discrimination) and (have equal opportunity to) prosper!
