White Cane Awareness Day Celebration (Virtual)

Join us for a White Cane Awareness Day Celebration (Virtual)! The white cane is a symbol of independence and blindness. The white cane allows an individual who is legally blind to travel independently. In 1931, the Lions Club began promoting the use of white canes for people who are blind as a national identification program.

Join the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB) online for an International White Cane Awareness Day Celebration!

We will discuss the history of the white cane, the “White Cane Law”, white cane benefits, different types of canes, traveling recommendations, the impact of COVID-19, and best practices during a pandemic.
