Each year on April 2, the global community recognizes World Autism Awareness Day, established by the United Nations in 2007. Autism Speaks, one of the world’s leading advocates of autism research and awareness, commemorates this day by sponsoring Light It Up Blue. A global initiative, Light It Up Blue urges individuals, businesses, and communities to shine blue lights inside and outside of their homes, offices, and other venues to promote autism awareness. Autism Speaks provides extensive resources on its website to help facilitate this international event, including instructions for fundraiser registration, Light It Up Blue merchandise, and guides to finding and installing blue lighting.

A wide array of international landmarks, sporting venues, concert halls, and other iconic structures have participated in this global awareness campaign, including Australia’s Sydney Opera House, the Empire State Building, and the Torch Hotel in Qatar.
