For over a decade, more than 600 cities, 45 countries, and 3000 structures have celebrated World Autism Day by lighting schools, businesses, and public buildings in blue light in efforts to shine a light on autism.
This year Autism Nova Scotia is asking you to help us carry on this tradition in a time where your visual and online support is more important than ever.
We hope you will join us and the rest of the world on April 2nd by participating on social media using #ShineBlueNS. You can show your support for World Autism Day by creating your own events and putting up displays.
We hope you will join us by using #ShineBlueNS on April 2nd, but also let us know what you are doing throughout the month to make our communities more autism-friendly and accessible. Whether it is a social media fundraiser in support of Autism Nova Scotia, a virtual education session, or any autism-inclusive stories you can share - we want to know!
