Good Evening Federation Family:

I wanted to make sure the below information got out to the widest audience. Please see below for an important update on safety and support initiatives. Please complete the referenced survey as soon as you can as it will help shape future efforts. Leaders have completed the first phase of our training, but we know there is much more to do. Chapters, please assist those who may not be comfortable using the web with the telephone option presented so that the survey can reach the widest pool of participants possible! Please reach out if there are any questions!

Your Feedback Is Important: Climate Assessment Survey Now Open

As mentioned in the April 15 open letter from President Riccobono <https://nfb.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=20927&qid=5212971> , RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, is partnering with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) to gather feedback from the blind community, including NFB members and nonmembers, in a climate assessment survey to help inform recommendations for further sexual misconduct prevention and response programming. This effort will assist in determining additional and continuous training, which will ultimately provide consistency across the organization. This is a baseline measurement to target our future efforts and will continue to be assessed as a component of our accountability measures.

All responses go directly to RAINN and are completely anonymous. RAINN will deliver a report detailing findings and implications that will be shared at the time of our 2021 national convention. 

Take Survey via Web or Phone

Participate in the assessment survey either via the web or by phone. It will take approximately thirty to forty-five minutes. Please complete by Wednesday, May 12, 2021. For the web*, use the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/rainn-nfb2021 <https://nfb.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=20938&qid=5212971> 

*Web survey note: if completing the survey with a screen reader, a helpful tip when currently navigating pages in SurveyMonkey is to press Control+Home before answering the next set of questions. 

The survey may also be completed over the phone by calling 229-632-7878 or toll-free 833-632-7878. Please note that the phone number above provides the survey in an automated system and will require the survey to be completed at one time. There is an option to pause the survey for five minutes and the pause can be extended as needed. Push # for help. 

Your participation in the survey is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your commitment to the movement. For more information on our safety and support initiatives, please visit nfb.org/survivors <https://nfb.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=20929&qid=5212971> .
