The Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind is a nonprofit organization that has been serving the North Texas community for almost 85 years. Their mission is to provide opportunities and assistance to individuals affected by blindness. By offered knowledge, training and motivation, the Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind seeks to help those affected by blindness to succeed, thrive and contribute to their communities.
Every year, the Dallas Lighthouse hosts White Cane Day Awareness and Celebration at Dallas City Hall. Each year, 150 or more local residents with visual impairment get together with the public to celebrate their solo travel independence. Many local schools are also involved, including students and faculty. This year is the 52nd anniversary since original proclamation signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.
There will be a walk around City Hall for 30 minutes in celebration. Then, in an outdoor venue at City Hall, there will be representatives speaking on various local resources there to serve people with visual impairment and assist them in receiving education, employment and more.
This is a celebration and a demonstration of individuals who are blind and visually impaired and are living life to the fullest through education, employment, and recreation.
