National Association of Blind Students
For over four decades, the National Association of Blind Students has worked, as an integral part of the National Federation of the Blind, to promote the equality of the blind by serving as a source of information, forum for networking and vehicle for collective action for blind students. Our work on the local, state, and national levels is firmly rooted in the conviction that blindness need not prevent one from excelling in a chosen field of study or living a full and productive life. Above all else, we are dedicated to changing what it means to be blind, by both changing perceptions among the general public of the capabilities of the blind and encouraging blind students to strive to achieve their maximum potential and realize their dreams.

Support the NFB with Your Unused/Unwanted Vehicles
Do you have a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, RV, airplane or other wheeled/winged conveyance taking up space on your property? Do you know someone who does? Would you like to help the National Federation of the Blind by turning that vehicle into a donation? You might even qualify for a tax deduction on your federal income taxes. If yes, we'd love to help you out. The NFB has partnered with Vehicles for Charity to turn unwanted vehicles into cash to help fund our movement.
