Eric Ascher

Eric Ascher is the Communications Associate for RespectAbility, a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities. As the Communications Associate, he is responsible for supporting RespectAbility’s Communications Director in developing and implementing advocacy efforts and communications of various types. Ascher manages RespectAbility’s social media channels, website and emails; organizes and develops webinars; and supervises Communications Fellows.

Ascher graduated from Goucher College in May 2016 as a communications major and political science minor. He initially joined RespectAbility as a Communications Fellow in the Spring 2018 cohort. He was drawn to RespectAbility because, being on the autism spectrum himself, he knows that people with disabilities are capable of doing great work, just like everyone else. He is excited to help RespectAbility build on its messaging because he cares about the work that RespectAbility does every day.

Ascher previously completed internships at GMMB, PFLAG National, Maryland New Directions, NIH, Verasolve and StartFinder. Through his coursework and internship experience, he has gained experience writing short and long-form blog posts, social media posts and press releases. He also has filmed and edited videos, designed websites and print flyers, proofread documents and completed research projects. In his free time, he enjoys watching and podcasting about reality talent competition shows, attending concerts and playing video games.
