Live the Life You Want!

NFB Ohio

The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio 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. Live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back!

“I pledge to participate actively in the efforts of the National Federation of the Blind to achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind; to support the policies and programs of the Federation; and to abide by its constitution.”
