Senator Levin to Participate in the
National Federation of the Blind Motor City March for Independence

Michigan Senator to Address the Marchers

Detroit, Michigan (June 23, 2009): The National Federation of the  
Blind announced today that Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) will speak at the  
organization's third annual civil rights march and rally.  The Motor  
City March for Independence will take place on the morning of July 6,  
2009, as part of the National Federation of the Blind convention,  
which will be held in Detroit this year.  Over one thousand blind  
people from across the nation will march to raise money to benefit  
blind people all over the United States and to raise awareness about  
the capabilities of the blind.

Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of the Blind,  
said: "We are pleased to have an outstanding public servant like  
Senator Levin show his commitment to first-class status for blind  
Americans by joining our March for Independence this year.  We look  
forward to continuing to work with the Senator to achieve the full  
integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality."

Senator Levin said: "As Detroit hosts the National Federation of the  
Blind's annual national convention, this is Michigan's chance to show  
that we fully support equality and opportunity for blind Americans.   
It is an honor for me to participate in the March for Independence,  
and I am looking forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with men and  
women who are so committed to this important cause."

Senator Levin has served in the U.S. Senate since 1976 and is Chairman  
of the Senate Armed Services Committee.  He joins former Motown singer  
and current Detroit Councilwoman Martha Reeves, Representative John  
Dingell, and other local Detroit luminaries who will participate in  
the Motor City March for Independence.
