Changing what it means to be blind in the Nation's Capital. We know that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. 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!
The National Federation of the Blind National Convention is the largest gathering of blind people in the world.
It is the premier event for training, support, and information for the blind community. It also serves as a governing body, democratically electing our leadership and establishing each year's organizational priorities.
The National Federation of the Blind has distributed more than 64,000 free white canes since 2008.
The Braille Monitor is the flagship publication of the National Federation of the Blind.
