student with poster reading me plus white cane equals independence

The Department of the Blind/ Visually Impaired staff and students united to celebrate White Cane day in October. They carried their posters during a walk along Main Street in Gooding, to build the awareness of the general public about White canes and their use within the Blind /Visually Impaired population.

International White Cane Safety Day helps increase awareness across the globe about important safety considerations when encountering people using canes.

  • The white cane signifies that the pedestrian using it is blind or visually impaired.
  • The white cane alerts motorists of the need to exercise special caution and provide the user the right of way.
  • The white cane symbolizes the independence, confidence and skills of the person who is using it.
