What is White Cane Day?
The President of the United States annually recognizes White Cane Day by the Blind Americans Equality Day Proclamation on October 15th to acknowledge the abilities of people who are blind and to promote equal opportunities as any other American.
Mission of White Cane Day Austin
The mission of White Cane Day is to educate the world about blindness and how the blind and visually impaired can live and work independently while giving back to their communities, to celebrate the abilities and successes achieved by blind people in a sighted world and to honor the many contributions being made by the blind and visually impaired.
Each year the Austin community comes together for an event to celebrate this exciting day. And now that we will be doing a live and virtual event simultaneously, it promises to be bigger and better than ever, so tell your friends and come have some fun!
