Hi Miss Kim,

Thank you for sharing this. I do not recognize either of the names of the people speaking about blindness (Nyema Pinkney from SRC and Garry Gross). I have learned in the past that we never know who is on this list, so I do not want to ask people here to tell us on the list how positive their philosophies about blindness are. What I might say, though, is that it would be a really good idea if some of our people could be at this event in order to be sure that there is a good voice for the truth about blindness. We may even find that these two individuals are already Federationists at heart but just haven't found our organization yet.

Who plans to be there? I'd love to hear how it goes!

Hi Kim,

I wanted to make sure that you are aware that we are having a panel of people with different types of disabilities on June 2nd. I have attached a flyer. Nyema Pinkney from the state Rehab Council who is blind will be speaking as well as Garry Gross. Please circulate this to people that you might know in the blind community. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks!
