Autism affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys.
We want to show the world that Las Vegas cares about helping spread autism awareness and what better way to show that than to have the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign lit up blue for World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, 2012!
team austin jordan, a local group of family members, friends and co-workers fighting for autism, created the Las Vegas Lights It Up Blue event last year (2010). we had a great turnout (for only planning it a few weeks ahead) of over 60 supporters!
we would like to make this an annual event and have two goals for the 2nd year:
1) get over 100 supporters!
2) get the sign to be lit up blue! (what this petition is for)
TAJ would like to invite the entire las aegas community to help them shine a light on autism. they encourage everyone to light it up blue for world autism awareness day on april 2, 2012 by wearing blue and also invite everyone to join them at the welcome to las vegas sign at 7:30PM on April 2 to take a photo of everyone wearing blue!
