Oct 15 –
Tuesday, October 15 is White Cane Safety Day! Come celebrate the day and promote safety awareness in the neighborhood of LightHouse Headquarters (1155 Market St., San Francisco). Join LightHouse staff and ambassadors as we celebrate and spread awareness of White Cane Day from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. We encourage everyone to bring their canes or guide dogs with them for the event and to invite your friends and blindness allies if they are interested.
We will start off with a 30-minute welcome meeting at LightHouse on the 10th floor to talk about white canes, LightHouse's involvement with the Safe Streets project and pedestrian safety in the city. Come to LightHouse headquarters for the pre-walk event and meet San Francisco Mayor London Breed who will be in attendance. There will be refreshments for those attending the welcome.
After the meeting concludes at 10:30, we will go out as a group to City Hall and back to create awareness and visibility of the white cane and blind pedestrians. Anyone who comes to walk with us will get a free Safe Streets t-shirt – now in white!
If you are coming, RVSP directly to Briana Kusuma at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.694.7335 with your shirt size (if you would like one of our 2019 shirts) and be sure to wear your Safe Streets t-shirt if you already have one or don’t want to wear the new white one that day.
