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.

President's Update: Happy New Year (July 21, 2019)

Greetings, fellow federationists,

I received an email from President Riccobono the other day which started off with the line “happy federation new year.” I hadn’t really thought about this before, but I think it’s a fun way to consider the work we do in our organization. The national convention is where we meet and celebrate our successes, but it’s also a place where we craft policies for the coming year, and we appropriately refer to them as resolutions. As we look forward to the coming Federation year, I’m excited about the possibilities, and I look forward to exploring all of them with you.

Unlike January, however, we don’t have downtime at the start of our new year, and so I offer you the following in that spirit.

President's Update: Help—I Need Somebody! (June 19, 2019)

Greetings, fellow federationists,

One of the things that makes our organization great is how much we do on the individual level. Instead of a few people at the center of things doing all the work, we all come together when needed to make incredible things happen for blind people.
