Understanding and Acceptance
Sisters promote understanding and acceptance of Autism in various ways, including passing out blue wristbands, placing advertisements in campus and local newspapers, distributing information in the community and appearing on local television programs to educate others about autism spectrum disorders.
World Autism Month
Throughout the month of April, Alpha Xi Deltas are dedicated to shining a light on autism.
Our college chapters and alumnae across the country participate in Light It Up Blue, an initiative started by Autism Speaks in 2009 to help shine a light on autism by illuminating prestigious buildings and monuments throughout the world. This past year many of the world’s most recognized monuments were lit blue, including the Empire State Building, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, Christ the Redeemer Statue in Brazil and Niagara Falls.
