On April 2 each year, the Thompson Center joins Autism Speaks to promote World Autism Awareness Day through the Light It Up Blue campaign. In 2015, University of Missouri campus locations and buildings throughout Columbia were lit with blue lights to promote acceptance and awareness with the international community of people with autism spectrum disorders. Truman and his buddy TJ joined the community awareness event at the MU Student Center, followed by a brief walk at dusk to Memorial Union. Inside the Student Center, volunteers awarded prizes to attendees, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Columbia Chamber of Commerce and dropped balloons.
