This webinar will celebrate and bring awareness to the symbol of independence that the white cane represents for blind and visually impaired individuals. The event will also educate drivers and pedestrians on the laws designed to protect them and our communities. When you join us you will:

  • Hear testimonials from people who are blind or visually impaired and their experiences with driver safety,
  • Get to walk alongside the DBS See Different Team as they show us how to use a white cane, dog guide, and technology, to travel independently, and
  • Have the opportunity to be a part of a live Question and Answer session where you can ask the team any questions you have about the white cane law, dog guides, accessible technology, and more!
