Austin Celebrates White Cane Day   October 12, 2016

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.

Thank you to all that attended the 2016 Austin White Cane Day. We had a record number of 650 marchers and over 800 attendees.  This day would not have been possible without all the Sponsors and Volunteers. Thank you Austin!!
