White Cane Safety Day is October 15. "The Braille Forum" urges all readers to travel with your white canes or guide dogs and to educate the general public about pedestrian safety.
Disability Mentoring Day is October 16. Do you know teenagers or young adults who are blind or visually impaired? Bring them to work with you on Wednesday, October 16, so they can see other people with disabilities being successful at work.
If you are interested in participating in Disability Mentoring Day, as a student, a volunteer mentor, or an employer, find out more at http://www.aapd-dc.org/docs/.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
