Here is the proclaimation in text.

 

 

  WHEREAS, the white cane is a simple yet effective tool of independence
that contributes to the self-sufficiency of the blind and visually impaired
by allowing them to navigate through their environment safely, avoiding
physical barriers and hazards; and 

WHEREAS, the white cane is a symbol of dignity and determination as well as
a tangible reminder that individuals with impaired eyesight are able to go,
to move, to be, and to compete with all others in society and to lead full,
independent, and productive lives; and 

WHEREAS, established by the National Federation of the Blind, the annual
observance of "White Cane Safety Day" emphasizes the need for all Americans
to be aware of the presence of disabled persons in our communities and to
work together to keep the streets, highways, sidewalks, walkways, public
buildings and facilities, and places of public accommodation, amusement, and
resort safe and functional for the disabled; and 

WHEREAS, the 2015 observance of "White Cane Safety Day" provides an
opportunity for people across the Palmetto State and the nation to renew
their dedication to eliminating barriers for the blind and visually
impaired. 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Nikki R. Haley, Governor of the great State of South
Carolina, do hereby proclaim October 15, 2015, as 

WHITE CANE SAFETY DAY 

Throughout the state and encourage all South Carolinians to show respect for
those who carry the white cane, to honor their many achievements, and to
reaffirm our commitment to improving access to basic services for blind and
visually impaired persons. 

   

Nnikki R. HALEY 

GOVERNOR 

STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
