Welcome to the home of the National Federation of the Blind of Wisconsin.


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.


The National Federation of the Blind of Wisconsin (NFB Wis) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit made up of blind people of all ages, their families and friends. Our members and leaders provide advocacy and support to blind and visually impaired persons across the state.  We work together to promote full participation and integration of blind people in all areas of life, and we serve as an advocate for change when equal access and treatment of the blind is denied.

Chapters and divisions across the state offer community based forums for the blind and visually impaired to interact and work together on issues at the local level.  As a state-wide group, the NFB Wis brings the collective experiences of our members together to identify problems or needs and work for change at the state and national levels.

The NFB of Wisconsin believes that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the general misunderstanding and lack of information about blindness that exist. We believe that with the proper training, opportunity and positive attitudes, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical nuisance.
