Yesterday, we celebrated
White Cane Safety Day
, a national day of observance established in 1964 celebrating the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the importance of the white cane as a universal symbol of blindness and tool of independence.
Displaying their canes and signs, our students proudly marched on Williamsbridge Road in front of our Bronx campus to raise awareness and make their voices heard.

A special thanks to Councilman Gjonaj (pictured above), who joined us to present a New York City Council proclamation for White Cane Day that will be on display in our
Museum and Archives
throughout the years ahead.
