Autistic self advocate Huan Vuong (orange shirt) tells Marrok Sedgwick (straw hat) his vision for the future, through the assistance of his scribe Micah Budway (blue shirt).

[Image description: An overcast day. On the left, Vietnamese-American person with short hair points to letters on a plastic letterboard held by his scribe, who is seated next to him. On the right, a white person in a straw Stetson hat sits in his walker, holding his hand in the Y shape signing “Oh-I-See.” Behind them are trees and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, DC. An orange subtitle box floats center-top, reading, “I want us all to have access to a form of communication that works for us.”]
