Our mission is simple: We want to achieve equality and opportunity for the blind. The National Federation of the Blind of DC knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the misconceptions and lack of information which exist. You can live the life you want — Blindness is not what holds you back!
