April is World Autism Month. To spread awareness, ACT will again be partnering with local agencies and organizations to host our local Light It Up Blue event.
Light It Up Blue is global initiative to raise awareness for autism on World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness month. Iconic buildings and landmarks like the Empire State Building and Willis Tower will be illuminated with blue lights in support of the autism community.
Locally, we participate by asking businesses to display blue lights or a Light It Up Blue banner, and hosting a public event.
Please join us on Monday, April 2 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm outside of the Boone County Courthouse in downtown Columbia.There will be raffle prizes, a band, photos, and activities for all ages.
The event will end with a walk to City Chambers and a public comment by Mark Tapia at the Columbia City Council Meeting.
We hope to see you there!
