You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

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.


What Do You Think?
Two megaphones; one is blue; one is orange.

We are calling on all blind Americans to complete a brief ten-minute survey about their general media consumption and use of NFB-NEWSLINE®. All responses will remain anonymous. The survey will be open through Wednesday, June 10, 2020.

Free White Cane Program

The white cane gives blind people the ability to achieve a full and independent life. We have distributed more than 64,000 white canes since 2008.

NFB-NEWSLINE®

NFB-NEWSLINE is a free audio news service for anyone who is blind, low-vision, or print-disabled that offers access to publications, job listings, and more.

Early Childhood Initiatives

Our early childhood initiatives provide young blind children and their families with support and guidance to master the fundamental skills of literacy and independent travel.

Ways to Give

Your donations help us distribute free white canes, provide children with Braille and nonvisual skills instruction, advocate for the rights of blind Americans, and more.
