White Cane Safety Day – October 15

By Sherry Leinen, Secretary
Wyoming Council of the Blind

The white cane is not just a tool that can be used to achieve independence; it is also the symbol of the blind citizens in our society. To honor the many achievements of blind and visually impaired Americans and to recognize the white cane significance in advancing independence, we observe October 15th of each year as “White Cane Safety Day”. Please read more about White Cane Safety Day.
