Hello All:

The Washington Seminar is an annual event of the National Federation of the 
Blind to introduce the
agenda of blind Americans to the priority issues requiring congressional 
attention over the coming year.  The issues are selected from official 
positions of the Federation and may address concerns in the
following areas: Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs; 
relevant civil rights issues; 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; 
and other timely topics.

Approximately three legislative initiatives are chosen for priority 
attention during the Washington Seminar.

A delegation of blind Californians will visit with all 53 members of 
Congress and the 2 Senators.  The dates are January 31 to February 3, 2011.
