White Cane Safety Day

Every October 15 marks National White Cane Safety Day, a day dedicated to advocating for and educating about the White Cane Law. Since 1964, this day has been instrumental in promoting safe and inclusive communities for individuals with vision loss or blindness.

The White Cane Law actively supports the year-round independence of people in the blind and visually impaired community, fostering a sense of empowerment and enhancing public safety. Across the state of Wisconsin, thousands of individuals who are blind or visually impaired rely on a white cane for safe mobility and travel.
