Welcome to the official website of the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio

The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio (NFBO) is a founding affiliate of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). We are proud to be an integral part of the oldest and largest blindness organization in the United States. We are a diverse group of people dedicated to changing what it means to be blind. Our members work tirelessly to break down the legal, social, and personal barriers to living the lives we want.

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

Open-House Gatherings

Many people do not know the National Federation of the Blind, and they are reluctant to attend a local chapter meeting where they may have their questions answered. The Federation’s national office will be hosting teleconferences for individuals that are curious about the National Federation of the Blind. The teleconference will present them with an opportunity to receive information from and ask questions of Federationists. We will be able to dispel the myths and misconceptions about the NFB and highlight the benefits of membership. These calls are specifically intended for individuals who are curious about our organization and would benefit from learning about us in an educational environment.

The calls will take place on the third Sunday of each even numbered month and the third Wednesday of each odd numbered month. We would like to keep the list of participants small enough so that it will be impactful. Therefore, in order to participate, individuals will need to RSVP by emailing membership@nfb.org or calling 410-659-9314, extension 2509, and let us know which call date works best for them. Individuals selected to participate will receive the call-in information.
