Austin Celebrates White Cane Day October 18, 2017
Welcome to the official website for the White Cane Day celebration. Check back often to see what's been added.
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.
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.
Here is information on some of the White Cane Day Events happening in Texas. In the News section are the dates and there is a page designated to each area. Please get out and support your local White Cane Day events and share the information with you friends and family. Making each event bigger and better each year helps reach one more person and educates them about what we are celebrating.
White Cane day is on a bus! tweet or Facebook us if you find a bus with this sign on it around Austin leading up to the event.
