A letter from the PABS President:
Have you ever felt that being blind or visually impaired makes you different? Have you ever wanted to live free from these feelings of exclusion? Have you ever wished that you could know a blind person from whom you could ask advice on how to do things more effectively? Have you ever worried that you would not be able to be competitive in your education or career due to your vision? The National Federation of the Blind of Pennsylvania (NFB of PA) is an organization of blind individuals that works to resolve these questions and improve the lives of all blind people.
Within the NFB of PA, successfully employed blind individuals - including lawyers, doctors, scientists, teachers, business owners, etc.- all strive to help others obtain their career dreams. Blind students share ideas and tips on how to make life as a blind student “normal” and stress free. The members of this organization dedicate themselves to helping each other in many different ways. We share our experiences to encourage others to achieve greatness. We work to pass legislation that will give blind people equal opportunities to succeed. Most importantly, we put forth efforts to educate the sighted community about the abilities of blind people. In this organization, everyone can learn much and help others at the same time.
Please check back here regularly to learn about upcoming events and seminars.
