WASHINGTON, DC (April 29, 2014) -- Friends, families and supporters of Autism Speaks toured the White House Friday at the invitation of the Obama administration to celebrate Autism Awareness Month.
The White House guests were given the opportunity to visit a number of the historic rooms, including the “Blue Room” to celebrate Light It Up Blue. In addition to the tour, each participant was presented with a copy of President Obama's 2014 proclamation for World Autism Awareness Day.
