Autism Speaks to Celebrate World Autism Awareness Day with Day-Long Series of International Events on April 2
Date:3/11/2008

nisation, will be speaking at the meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Autism at the House of Commons on April 2nd on international developments in autism.

World Autism Awareness Day plans for Canada include efforts to involve national media to bring attention to this historic day. Federal and provincial government representatives are being encouraged to wear a puzzle piece pin and officially recognize April 2 in the House of Commons and provincial legislatures. Autism Speaks Canada is planning a number of awareness events throughout April, including an awareness night with the Toronto Rock Lacrosse Team and an autism-friendly movie day in partnership with Today's Parent Magazine and Movies for Mommies.

"Autism knows no geographic boundaries -- it affects individuals and families on every continent and in every country," said Suzanne Wright, co-founder of Autism Speaks. "The celebration of World Autism Awareness Day is an important way to help the world better understand the scope of this health crisis and the need for compassion and acceptance for those living with autism. This remarkable day -- the first of many to come -- promises to be a time of great hope and happiness as we work to build a global autism community."

Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned of Qatar supported the campaign for a World Autism Awareness Day through the current 62nd UN General Assembly Session, garnering consensus support from all United Nations Member States. On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly, by unanimous consent, passed the resolution of the Third Committee designating April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day in perpetuity starting in 2008.
