President's Letter

NFB members are incredibly diverse but our committees, divisions, and groups help our members support one another. I urge you to explore them--you will surely find the connections as rewarding and helpful as I do. More from President Riccobono.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines blind people or their future. Every day we raise the expectations of and for blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. We can live the lives we want; blindness is not what holds us back. Please join us in our work by becoming a member, attending an event, sharing this newsletter, or supporting our programs.
