Dear ICUB Members and Friends!
October 15th is White Cane Safety Day!
We want to promote this day by being in our communities. What does
being in the community look like for you?
Maybe it involves visiting the mall or catching a movie with friends,
going to work, taking a walk around your neighborhood, having a
cookout with family at home, or volunteering in your community.
As an organization of blind people that believes in blind people,
let's promote White Cane Safety Day this year by doing something in
our communities where we are visible to others, where we can be seen
living our lives as vibrant and integral members of the communities in
which we live.
Over the month of October, We can promote White Cane Safety Day by
sharing our experiences to social media. Send us your photos and
stories, and we will post them to the Iowa Council of the United Blind
Facebook page and website.
Submissions can be sent to the following email addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Let’s use White Cane Safety Day as a way to remind ourselves and
others that we as blind people are important members of our
