White Cane Day was first established as a holiday to promote the cane as a symbol of safety for the blind and visually impaired. Today, it’s become a symbol of independence.

On Thursday, students from the Washington State School for the Blind celebrated the holiday with outdoor walks and demonstrations throughout Vancouver.
