On Saturday, Dec. 16, WI FACETS is hosting “Autism Strong Posada Navideña” celebration from 12 to 3 p.m. at Christ St. Peter Lutheran School, 229 W. Greenfield Ave. The event is free and open to the public.
The event will provide a culturally sensitive setting for children with autism to celebrate the holiday season. This year’s event will also promote safe interaction between Latino children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and local law enforcement. The event is a result of a collaborative effort between WI FACETS, the Milwaukee Police Department – District 2, Safe & Sound and United Healthcare Community Plan; a committee known as Fuerza Autismo (Autism Strong).
