"Wandering" petition

Introduction: I'm a 20-year-old college student on the autism spectrum.
My friend alonglongtime is working very hard on stopping "wandering" from becoming a medical diagnosis. Sign the petition here: http://www.change.org/petitions/tell-the-cdc-no-on-abuse-enabling-wandering-code

There is more information about this wandering proposal here: http://www.autisticadvocacy.org/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=131

Commentary on this proposal closes April 1st, so act now!

(Also mentioned on the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network [ASAN] site: Why autistic people don't support Autism Speaks. Elsewhere on the web: why some of us prefer not to use "person-first" language ['autistic people' vs. 'people with autism'])
