The National Federation of the Blind National Convention is the largest gathering of blind people in the world.
It is the premier event for training, support, and information for the blind community. It also serves as a governing body, democratically electing our leadership and establishing each year's organizational priorities.
Free White Cane Program
The white cane allows you to travel independently and safely—no blind person should be without one. We offer you a free one. You can order a new one every six months.
The National Federation of the Blind has distributed nearly 100,000 free white canes since 2008.
The Braille Monitor is the flagship publication of the National Federation of the Blind.
