Who We Are

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 Massachusetts has thriving chapters in Cambridge (metro Boston) and Springfield, and members from across the state. We have a vibrant group of blind students who attend high schools and colleges, both private and public. We are parents, teachers, lawyers, social workers, entrepreneurs and many other successful people--who just happen to be blind. We all work together to support each other and improve the lives of blind people all over the commonwealth. We hope to see you at one of our events soon!
