Good job getting more involved in the community and helping to make a difference for all citizens.
Sheri Albers, Vice President
National Federation of the Blind of Ohio

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.

Hello Fellow Federationist!
The Cleveland has good news and not so good news to share. Well, let us give you the not so good news first.
Our annual fund raiser, bus trip to Amish Country, scheduled for Saturday June 24, is cancelled. Refund checks are being mailed this week. Look forward to hearing from us in the future about other opportunities to participate with the chapter.
Onward! Let’s get to the good news! On this past Saturday, members of the Cleveland chapter made the first step in relationship building with the City of Cleveland. Rob from the Mayor’s office explored Public Square with us. This was a huge success, several mobility barriers were identified, including traffic light concerns. Rob from the Mayor’s office, was very attentive, noted suggestions and recommendations, agreed to share with the other city departments, and follow up with the nfb Cleveland! We are confident that many of our suggestions will be effectively addressed. Stay tuned more to come soon!
Thank you to a special group of Federationist for showing up, making
it happen and braving extremely high temperatures to make this event a success! This is how we build the Federation!
Sarah Bishop, Natassha Ricks, Delcenia Brown, Wilbert Turner, Suzanne and Danielle Turner, Larry Rodriguez, Mary Ponder and Cecil Dukes!
Everyone have a Terrific Tuesday!
Wishing You All the Best,
William H. Turner President
