The Fourth Annual Autism Rocks concert is here and raising awareness for the autism community!

We recently got the chance to catch up with Alex Lin – founder of Autism Rocks, a nonprofit event with the mission is to de-stigmatize stereotypes people have on the Autism community – to talk everything about this amazing event taking place tonight at Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm featuring artists like Single by Sunday, Dylan Bernard, The Miracle Project, and more.

“I wanted to inspire others to look at Autism in a more positive light because usually when people think about autism, they associate it with a lot of negative stereotypes…I created this concert to give them a platform to prove to others that they are not only capable but also talented.”

He even opened up about getting the younger generation involved in raising awareness for the Autism community, saying:

“I want everyone, especially from the younger generation, to consider this one question: do we want to live in a kind of world that keeps letting this kind of injustice happen repeatedly or are we going to do something about this mistreatment once and for all? Right now, we need more people from the younger generation to take action because 63 percent of people who are bullied are on the spectrum and 1 in 59 kids in America have Autism in America.”

But thats not all! Autism Rocks will also be co-hosted by Piper Rockelle, who’s giving fans and followers an inside look at the inspiring event by taking over our Instagram Story (@TigerBeatNow) all day, today!
