On April 2 each year, MMI and its community partner, Autism Action Partnership, celebrate World Autism Awareness Day by collaborating with UNMC and other government and community entities to “light up blue” the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, the UNMC Hope Tower and other state landmarks.
Save the date for Light It Up Blue 2020: April 2 at 7 p.m.
The event, which culminates as crowds gathered on both the Nebraska and Iowa sides of the bridge meet in the middle to watch the bridge’s light turn blue, symbolizes the connection and community that increased awareness brings. Past events have been attended by Omaha Mayo Jean Stothert and Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh.
