The National Federation of the Blind of Alabama knows that blindness is NOT the characteristic that defines your or your future. Every day we raise expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life you want, blindness is NOT what holds you back.
Our 2020 National Federation of the Blind of Alabama Convention is now history. We had 142 in attendance and enjoyed three days of educational programing and time for fun and fellowship. We thank everyone who participated in any capacity. We look forward to our 2021 convention to be held in Eufaul, Alabama.
People who are blind can experience all of the joys and empowerment of every day life, and the lack of eyesight can be the least problem of blindness. Great significance is a person’s misunderstanding and lack of information. For example, with proper training and opportunity, blindness is often regarded more as a nuisance than a disability.
The National Federation of the Blind of Alabama is a self-help group of blind people who provide peer support for one another. The NFB of Alabama can help you understand that blindness need not be a tragedy. We work together to promote the goal of integrating blind people into society as equals and productive members. We work towards this goal by helping people outgrow their many misconceptions about blindness and by changing laws that affect the blind.
The National Federation of the Blind of Alabama is one of 52 affiliates of the National Federation of the Blind. You can learn more about the National Federation of the Blind at our national homepage at www.nfb.org. We are Alabama's and the nation's largest organization of the blind.
