About the National Federation of the Blind:


The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is the oldest, largest, and most
influential nationwide membership organization of blind people in the United
States.  Founded in 1940, the NFB advocates for the civil rights and
equality of blind Americans, and develops innovative education, technology,
and training

programs to provide the blind and those who are losing vision with the tools
they need to become independent and successful.  We need your support.  To

make a donation, please go to www.nfb.org.


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.
