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.

Federationists from all over the state and beyond helped put together a review of some of the ways we have made a difference throughout these 100 years. Visit www.nfbmn.org/100years to listen; the stream runs all day and starts at the beginning every half hour.
