April is World Autism Month and places are turning blue! The White House, the Empire State Building, Fenway Park and the John Hancock Building are also lighting up blue in recognition of people living with autism.
Right here in Southie, The Maiden, Nurture, South Boston Catholic Academy and even some local residents’ homes are showing their support with blue lights! If you would like to light up your home or business blue, you can head to Home Depot and pick up Blue Philips light bulbs!
Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place all month to increase understanding and acceptance and foster worldwide support. To learn more, visit here!
