Meet the Blind Month

Meet the Blind Month is our nationwide campaign to increase awareness of, and support for, the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). During October, the members of our affiliates, chapters, and divisions spread the message that blind people can live the lives we want by conducting a variety of outreach activities. These events create opportunities for people to meet the blind of their communities and to recognize that we are vital, contributing members of society.

Do You Dream in Color? Movie PosterThe documentary film Do You Dream in Color? is the focus of our Meet the Blind Month efforts this year. The film is a powerful and inspiring look at the journeys of four blind teenagers as they navigate the challenges of high school. Their true stories highlight the many obstacles faced by blind students and how they overcome them to live the lives they want. We hope that each NFB affiliate will hold or participate in at least one screening of this documentary during or around October.

If you are interested in learning more about hosting a screening of the film or want to get the toolkit we’ve created, contact Jen White, or (410) 659-9314, extension 2236.
