World Braille Day

Access for all. Started in 2019, World Braille Day serves to raise awareness of the importance of Braille as a means of communication, working toward human rights for blind and partially sighted people. According to the United Nations, “Braille is a tactile representation of alphabetic and numerical symbols using six dots to represent each letter and number, and even musical, mathematical and scientific symbols. Braille (named after its inventor in 19th century France, Louis Braille) is used by blind and partially sighted people to read the same books and periodicals as those printed in a visual font.” It is also celebrated on January 4th because that is the birthday of Louis Braille.

As a practice, Looking Glass Counseling is always working toward being more affirming and inclusive in serving others through psychotherapy. LGC welcomes and supports clients of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, and people with disabilities. Here are a few websites and ways you can support braille literacy locally and nationally:
