/> National Federation of the Blind - Affiliate Board Skip to main content | Skip to navigation content | Skip to sidebar content


The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
