White Cane Safety Day

White Cane Safety Day

When : October 15th

White Cane Safety Day celebrates and recognizes the achievements of the blind and visually impaired, and their independence. That independence is represented by the white cane that they use to travel from place to place.

The white cane is an invaluable tool for the blind. It affords blind people a freedom of movement they otherwise may not have. The white cane is a well recognized symbol of independence.

If you know someone who is blind or visually impaired, celebrate this day with him or her. We suggest you let them take you for a walk.
