The League to Fight Neurelitism
Official Proclamation
Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service

For Immediate Release [first published on January 14, 2009]

The League to Fight Neurelitism, a public sociology project in support of United Nations human rights principles, joins with the government of the United States in proclaiming the nineteenth day of January, 2009, and each subsequent third Monday in January, as Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service.

Dr. King, we believe, ranks among the most important and inspirational human rights leaders of the twentieth century. He, perhaps more than virtually any other figure, exemplifies the United States civil rights movement and its struggles, laying the groundwork for the election of the first African American president, Barak Obama.

The League to Fight Neurelitism hopes that a similar spirit, one which has, in remembrance of Dr. King, continued to motivate people to pursue lives of public service, will encourage many of us to work, enthusiastically, toward the achievement of full civil rights for autistics throughout the world. All minorities must, if we are to be fair, benefit from this individual's enormous legacy.

Respectfully submitted,

Mark A. Foster, Ph.D.
Founding Director,
