Autistic Pride Day is a pride celebration held on June 18th of each year. Autistic Pride recognizes the importance of pride for autistic people and its role in bringing about positive changes in the broader society. "Standing up and passionately defending your own truth, regardless of convention or tone, or social dynamics even if it goes completely against the grain, or others consider it minor or pedantic, is Autistic Pride in Action," proclaimed Joseph Redford, an organizer for Autistic Pride at London's Hyde Park. League School for Autism celebrates Autistic Pride Day and advocacy for all.

Even though the Emancipation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control. In the westernmost Confederate state of Texas, enslaved people would not be free until June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas. The army announced that the more than 250,000 enslaved black people in the state, were free by executive decree. This day came to be known as "Juneteenth."

In commemoration of Juneteenth, League School for Autism will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th.
