BALTIMORE - April is Autism Awareness Month, and Baltimore City Hall has jumped in on bringing attention to the cause.
In honor of Autism Awareness Month, the city hall has been lit blue.
The switch was officially flipped Tuesday night at a special "Light It Up Blue" event that took place from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at War Memorial Plaza.
Mayor Stephanie Raylings-Blake, along with the Baltimore City Health Department and representatives of Kennedy Krieger were in attendance to mark Baltimore's participation in the national event.
The Light It Up Blue campaign is an international initiative launched by Autism Speaks to have more than 200 notable buildings turn their lights blue to recognize families affected by autism.
