Capitol to be illuminated in blue
Nevada’s Capitol Building, 406 East 2nd St. and the Governor’s Mansion, 606 Mountain St., will be lit in special blue lights tonight and will remain lit for the entire month of April in support of Autism Speaks’ global Light It Up Blue campaign to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) and Autism Awareness Month. Nearly 200 iconic landmarks, airports, bridges, sports arenas, museums, concert halls, restaurants as well as retail, corporate and media partners in more than 25 U.S. cities and 15 countries will light up in bright blue that night to raise awareness and shine a light on autism as a growing public health crisis now affecting 1 in every 110 American children.
