Legislative Issues

The National Federation of the Blind is a powerful voice for advocacy, opportunity, and equality for blind Americans. Each year, we travel to Washington D.C. to meet with our Congressional representatives in order to educate them on issues of critical importance to the blind of the nation. We are also hard at work in our home state ensuring that legislation that benefits blind children and adults is passed.

To learn more, please read the legislative issues that are currently being presented to our representatives in Congress.
