Autism Speaks to Celebrate Third Annual World Autism Awareness Day with Partners Around the World
Date:3/25/2010

Light It Up Blue Campaign and New York Stock Exchange Bell-Ringing Highlight Awareness Activities

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2010 -- On April 2, Autism Speaks, the world’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, will mark the third annual celebration of World Autism Awareness Day – a global effort to heighten awareness about a disorder affecting millions of individuals and families around the world – with a series of high profile awareness events and initiatives. World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) was established by a resolution passed unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, making autism one of only three health issues to be recognized by the UN with its own “day.”

On the evening of March 31, Autism Speaks will hold a reception to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day and honor world renowned artist Yoko Ono Lennon as Autism Speaks’ first Global Autism Ambassador in recognition of her work in making autism part of global consciousness. Last year on WAAD, Yoko Ono Lennon unveiled an original piece of artwork that she created for the day and auctioned it off as a fundraiser. In addition, Autism Speaks will screen a public service announcement call to action from UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon on WAAD. In addition, Autism Speaks will reiterate its international challenge to make 2010-2020 the Decade for Autism. The Decade challenges countries around the world to fund a total of $100 million in autism research and services in their regions.

Autism Speaks Co-founders Bob and Suzanne Wright will join other families affected by autism on April 1 – a day prior
