Subject: 2021 Washington Seminar Information now available
At our Washington Seminar, members of the National Federation of the Blind
convene to learn about and advocate for legislative initiatives that will
improve the lives of blind Americans.
The first Washington Seminar took place in 1973. Today, more than five
hundred people from the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto
Rico typically attend.
Approximately three legislative initiatives are chosen for priority
attention each year. These initiatives, which form the Washington Seminar
priorities, are based on the official positions of the NFB adopted at the
national convention and can address concerns related to civil rights,
educational programs and services, rehabilitation of the blind for
competitive employment, the operation of vending facilities by blind persons
on public property, specialized library services for the blind, the
organization and funding of federal programs, Social Security Disability and
Supplemental Security Income programs, and other timely topics.
We have posted the NFB 2021 Washington Seminar Agenda and Fact Sheets on
