Every year on September 9, communities throughout the United States and the world observe FASD Awareness Day. Events are held at 9:09–the 9th minute of the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month of the year. This date and time is used to remind women not to drink during the 9 months of pregnancy.

The first FAS Awareness Day was held on 9/9/99. Since then, the Federal government and many State and local governments have officially recognized FASD Awareness Day. Individuals, organizations, and communities have been active every year organizing events and special ceremonies to promote awareness and increase compassion for individuals with an FASD.
