For Autism Awareness Month buildings all over the world are going blue to raise autism awareness. On April 2, 2019 blue was seen everywhere whether it was the sky, t-shirts people were wearing, or buildings lighting up. This initiative was created to educate as well as push for acceptance of everyone. People around the world are encouraged to wear blue clothing as well as post on social media to raise awareness.
Landmarks around the world will turn blue in support of the cause. Landmarks include Niagara Falls, The United Nations, the Empire State building, the White House and state government buildings that have lit up on April 2nd in past years.
