In a planned gesture confirmed by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, the White House will project a shade of blue on Sunday night as a means of bringing awareness to those living with autism.
Speaking with reporters Friday morning, Spicer told the caravan of journalists that the White House is in full recognition of World Autism Awareness Day and that the country’s most famous home will show its support.
The color blue speaks to the Autism Spectrum Disorder’s disproportionate targeting of boys. One out of every 54 young boys is diagnosed with autism, compared to one out of every 252 females.
