For Immediate Release:
Taking A Step To Help Autistic Citizens
Situated to become The Legal Resource Center for Autism
July 21, 2014 (Wall, NJ) — Reform It Now, Inc. was formally incorporated on July 21st, 2014 at the New Jersey Division of Revenue’s offices in Trenton, NJ.
The incorporation is an important event, setting forth the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit corporation.
Reform It Now‘s purpose is to assist autistic citizens and their families to identify attorneys sensitive to their particular needs and capable of advocating for them. We work to defend the rights of the autistic by helping them find competent counsel, and by enlightening judges, prosecutors, court officers, clerks and others involved in the legal system about the variable needs of those on the autism spectrum.
Why Create Reform It Now?
We seek to challenge the way autistic citizens are treated in courts. Often mistreated, or their condition ignored, neglected and habits overlooked, these citizens are clearly in need of advocacy and support. Finding attorneys who are truly prepared to assist them, compassionately, honestly and professionally is imperative. Reform It Now will inform, test and certify attorneys and maintain an internal directory, providing our volunteers with the ability to refer lawyers based on specialty and locale.
Reform It Now will also provide legal defense funding for those in need. Considering that many autistic individuals are poor and incapable of paying for legal services, we intend to provide basic funding for legal services. This funding is focused primarily on helping those in the most critical legal trouble.
