Senior Washington Correspondent for The Independent & Author of "We're Not Broken: Changing the Autism Conversation"

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Eric Garcia Biography

Eric Garcia is the senior Washington correspondent for The Independent. He is the author of "We're Not Broken: Changing the Autism Conversation," which was released in August 2021 by Mariner Books. With a reporter’s eye and an insider’s perspective, Garcia shows what it’s like to be autistic across America.

Garcia began writing about autism because he was frustrated by the media’s coverage of it; the myths that the disorder is caused by vaccines, the narrow portrayals of autistic people as white men working in Silicon Valley. His own life as an autistic person didn’t look anything like that. He is Latino, a graduate of the University of North Carolina, and works as a journalist covering politics in Washington D.C. Garcia realized he needed to put into writing what so many autistic people have been saying for years; autism is a part of their identity, they don’t need to be fixed.

In "We’re Not Broken," Garcia uses his own life as a springboard to discuss the social and policy gaps that exist in supporting those on the spectrum. From education to healthcare, he explores how autistic people wrestle with systems that were not built with them in mind. At the same time, he shares the experiences of all types of autistic people, from those with higher support needs, to autistic people of color, to those in the LGBTQ community. In doing so, Garcia gives his community a platform to articulate their own needs, rather than having others speak for them, which has been the standard for far too long.

Garcia previously worked at The Washington Post, The Hill, Roll Call, National Journal and MarketWatch. His work has also been featured in The New Republic, NPR, The Daily Beast, Salon.com and Spectrum.
