National Federation of the Blind of Michigan Washtenaw County Chapter support group Meeting: National Federation of the Blind of Michigan.

  community member   < less

The local Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind promotes the security, equality and opportunity of all blind persons. With the right training and opportunity blind people can compete on equal terms with their sighted peers. It is respectable to be blind. Blindness is just another physical characteristic or nuisance. Blind people speak for themselves and serve as mentors for each other. Blind people of any age are welcome from children through seniors. The primary focus of the National Federation of the Blind, both on the national and local level is to change what it means to be blind through advocacy. We are not primarily a social organization, although social events occur in the context of our advocacy work. Examples of our advocacy might include assisting a blind student to receive Braille instruction or assisting a blind person who is experiencing discrimination in regards to employment due to blindness. Lunch is from 12:00 to 1:00 with the Business Meeting at 1:00.
