Light It Up Purple
More than 125 landmarks worldwide were being bathed in purple light Thursday night, recognizing the world’s 1.2 billion people with disabilities.
The event, a call for inclusion and equal treatment, came as the Paralympics began in Tokyo next week. “Purple has long been associated with the disability community,” the organizers say. At least 30 countries are taking part.
