How to Join

The National Federation of the Blind welcomes all blind people, parents of blind children, blind students, those losing vision, and more. We are a family of members and friends that knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. You can live the life you want.

Join us today by reaching out to your state affiliate president and attending your next local chapter or division meeting.
