The familiar “white cane” is recognized in all cultures as a symbol of independence that enables the blind and visually impaired to participate in the facets of daily life.
National White Cane Safety Day, observed annually on October 15, is a day of special significance for Americans who are blind or visually impaired because it represents a declaration of freedom.
It also signifies a commitment by the sighted community to improve access to basic services for persons who are blind and visually impaired.
