GuideStar Status

The National Federation of the Blind is a powerful voice for advocacy, opportunity, and equality for blind Americans. Each year, we travel to Washington D.C. to meet with our Congressional representatives in order to educate them on issues of critical importance to the blind of the nation. We are also hard at work in our home state ensuring that legislation that benefits blind children and adults is passed.

Join us at the Capitol!

To learn more, please read the legislative issues that are currently being presented to our representatives in Congress.

NFB Day at Nevada Legislature

On March 13th, members of the National Federation of the Blind of Nevada will arrive in Carson City to meet with our elected legislators to gain support for the creation of a Blind Parents Protection Law. With Federationists from the Northern and Southern Chapters and at large members participating we will meet directly with our Lawmakers and make sure they understand that Blindness is not a reason to question the ability of a parent to provide a safe, loving and successful home for their children. For more information on the NFB Day at the Nevada Legislature, please contact Dora Uchel at dorauchel@icloud.com.
