Meet the Blind Month

The National Federation of the Blind celebrates Meet the Blind Month every October. Throughout the month, we conduct activities that bring sighted people and blind people together, and we spread the message that we are vital, contributing members of society.

White Cane Awareness Day

The white cane allows us to move freely and safely from place to place, whether it's at work, at school, or around our neighborhoods. On White Cane Awareness Day, which is October 15, we conduct activities like white cane walks, film screenings, and social events. 

National Convention

The largest gathering of blind people in the world, our convention is the place for training, support, and inspiration for the blind community. Check out preliminary details for the 2019 National Convention and highlights from 2018.
