Resources on BLINDNESS 
And the N.F.B.

This is your link to my documents on blindness and THE representative organization of the blind, the National Federation of the Blind. No other organization of or for the blind can truly claim to be as positively dynamic, or as effectively representative of blind persons as the Federation. Proof of this statement can be found in this 'minisite.' This is by no means an "official" NFB resource. However it is hoped that readers will find this section helpful in the search for information.


Who represents the Blind? Who really speaks for blind persons in the United States?

What is the National Federation of the Blind Basic information about the NFB.

Services Available to the blind.

"If Blindness Comes" Edited by Kenneth Jernigan, this publication widens the understanding of blindness and blind people by detailing how the blind lead their daily lives and cope with everyday situations.

Why I'm a Federationist by David Milner in Accessible HTML or plain text. Why one ordinary person got involved in the NFB.

The NFB Conventions Page Conventions of the National Federation of the Blind are attended by blind and sighted people from all over the world. In July of each year, the blind in their thousands and their sighted friends gather in one location to discuss issues concerning the blind, draw up plans for positive action, renew old aquaintences and make new friends.
